A man convicted of double-murder will get a new trial.
The BC Court of Appeal ruled a videotaped “re-enactment” of the killings should never have been played for the jury.
Robert Bradshaw was sentenced to life in prison on two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Laura Lamoureaux and Marc Bontkes.
The Crown sought to use the video when their primary witness refused to testify.
The murders were five days apart in 2009 — in Langley and Surrey.
While Bontkes and Lamoureux did not know each other, both were allegedly associated with the suspects through the street-level drug trade.
