There’s been a new development in the Surrey Six case.
One person charged in connection to events surrounding the 2007 mass shooting at a Surrey highrise has entered a guilty plea.
The brother of one of the Surrey Six killers has pleaded guilty to one count of obstructing justice, for his role in the events surrounding the massacre.
Justin Haevischer had also been charged with being an accessory after the fact, but that is being stayed as part of a plea deal with Crown.
Sentencing is set for September.
Haevischer’s brother, Cody, was found guilty of conspiracy and six counts of first-degree murder.
He and fellow gang member Matthew Johnston were sentenced to life in prison.
A trial for gangster Jamie Bacon has yet to begin.
“It brings a sense of ensurity that the process is working…though it’s long, it’s working.”
The mother of one of the innocent victims killed in the mass shooting says charges against Haevischer would not be possible without investigators taking time to make sure no stone was left unturned.
Eileen Mohan’s son Chris left their apartment in Balmoral Tower to go play basketball when he ended up being murdered.
“Where sentencing is concerned, I have to leave that in the judge’s hands and the Crown’s hands. There’s nothing I can do to change the outcome.”
That said, she is hoping Justin Haevischer receives the maximum sentence.
She is planning to read her victim impact statement during his sentencing hearing.
