An Alberta man accused of shooting an RCMP officer to death in Hay River, N.W.T., in 2007 returned to court Tuesday morning for a hearing on what evidence will be admissible at his trial.[...]
At the Crown's request, the judge presiding over the voir dire imposed a publication ban on any evidence presented during the hearing, CBC News reporter Richard Gleeson reported from the courthouse.
In one of Bulatci's previous court appearances, the Crown described the case against Bulatci as circumstantial, meaning it has not found anyone who witnessed Worden being shot.
Bulatci's trial is scheduled to begin in October.
