One of the four charges laid against a couple accused of plotting to blow up the BC Legislature has essentially been dropped.
John Nuttall and Amanda Korody are no longer facing prosecution for allegedly facilitating a terrorist act.
The judge has instructed the jury to enter a not guilty verdict ‘due to legal reasons.’
BC Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce has also reminded them they are not allowed to speculate on why that charge has been dropped or whether this ruling has any impact on the other three charges laid after the couple was arrested on Canada Day in 2013.
The defence is expected to wrap up evidence today.
Nuttall and Korody will not be testifying.
