A man involved in the 2005 murder of 14-year-old Chelsey Acorn has been sentenced.
30-year-old Dustin Moir has been sentenced to life for first-degree murder.
Moir was granted a new trial in 2013 after the B.C. Court of Appeal overturned a guilty verdict when the three panel court had ruled the judge in Moir’s original trial did not correctly instruct the jury over two different witnesses.
Moir was convicted of Chelsey’s death by a B.C. Supreme Court jury two years prior with the exact same sentence he faces now.
Chelsey ran away from her Abbotsford home in 2005, her body was found by two hikers in a remote area off the Coquihalla Highway outside of Hope.
Moir’s father Jessie West was also convicted in Chelsey’s murder back in 2013, West was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.
