Serial killer farmer who butchered women and fed them to pigs loses appeal

The British Columbia Court of Appeal today rejected the appeal of a farmer
convicted of butchering six women and feeding them to his pigs.

Today’s decision means Robert Pickton may not go to trial for the 20 other
deaths with which he is charged.

Pickton is already serving the maximum sentence of life with no possibility of
parole for 25 years.

The Canadian government has said it would not proceed with a second trial if
Pickton lost his appeal of the 2007 conviction on six counts of
second-degree murder.

Most of the women were prostitutes and drug addicts. Police say it is Canada’s
worst serial murder case.

The judge in the first trial proceeded with just six of the 26 murder charges.
