NEWS - Court of Appeal Grants Bail to Raymond Stacey
"The highest court in the province has set bail conditions for a man accused of the second-degree murder of a chicken plant co-worker.
In the Court of Appeal on Wednesday, Raymond Stacey, 24, agreed to keep the peace, obey an 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. curfew, report to the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary once a week, live at a particular residence in St. John's, and other conditions."
Additional Articels on this Case:
The death of Don Dunphy is a tragedy that has affected not only his immediate family and community but the province as a whole. It’s a sign of how close-knit and down-to-earth we are that when one of our own is killed, there is a collective outpouring of grief and outrage. And when that death occurs under troubling and mystifying circumstances, it causes a natural sense of fear and demand for answers and action.
The officer at the centre of the controversy over why and how Mr. Dunphy was killed has not been named, and the investigation is ongoing. Yet on Friday that officer sent a mass email to his colleagues, which has since been released to the media and published and shared widely.- See more at: http://theindependent.ca/2015/04/13/officers-letter-in-don-dunphy-killing-inflames-controversy/#sthash.aLNuROaa.dpu
