A BC mother says it's "unbelievable" one of the men convicted in the death of her daughter has had that conviction overturned, and will now get a new trial.
Dustin Moir was convicted of first-degree murder in Chelsey Acorn's death back in 2010, and received a life sentence.
The BC Court of Appeal has ordered a new trial, ruling the trial judge did not properly instruct the jury.
Lisa Acorn says she's frustrated her family is still not able to move on from this.
"You know, the main thing is we know he's guilty, the evidence all points to that. It's only because there were a few errors on the judge's behalf that we're even having to do this again. I'm confident we're just going to have another conviction, but it's a long process for me and my family to endure again."
Moir's father, Jesse West, was also convicted of killing Acorn, just last week.
The 14-year-old runaway disappeared in 2005, and her body was found the next year north of Hope.
