Wettlaufer's trial date to be set Friday

21 Avril 2017

Wettlaufer was arrested on October 25 and charged with eight counts of first degree murder in the deaths of seven residents of Caressant Care in Woodstock and one resident of Meadow Park nursing home in London.

Elizabeth Wettlaufer appeared in a Woodstock court on Friday morning and had her next court date set for May 12.

Her lawyer, Brad Burgess, said he may be looking for a change of venue, if the high-profile case goes to trial, suggesting it will be outside of Woodstock where the accused lived and worked.

The 49-year-old faces a slew of charges, including eight counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of residents in nursing homes in Woodstock and London over the last decade.
