The man who killed his daughter and two sons seven years ago in Merritt could find out this week if he’ll be granted some freedom from a psychiatric hospital in Port Coquitlam.
Allan Schoenborn’s latest review hearing resumes on Wednesday.
Since Schoenborn was found not criminally responsible for what he did in 2008, there’s been an annual review to determine if his mental health has improved.
His doctors claim he’s well enough to take escorted outings, but his ex-wife Darcie Clarke wants him locked up for at least three years before he can seek another review.
This week’s hearing is slated to last three days.
The Criminal Code was retroactively changed last year, making it easier to indefinitely keep patients considered high risk in custody.
If prosecutors seek that designation for Schoenborn, it would be considered a test of Bill C-14.
