A SECOND degree murder trial begins its second week today for a death that occurred in Thornhill more than two years ago.

Brandon Davey remains in custody for the three to four-week scheduled supreme court trial by jury after he was charged and not granted bail in a court appearance in November 2009.

On November 17, 2009 at approximately 4:15 p.m., Terrace RCMP were called about a man who was said to be covered in blood and screaming at a Thornhill residence, reported police at that time.

Police found that the man had been assaulted and suffered a serious injury as a result, said police.

He was taken to Mills Memorial Hospital and then medevaced to Vancouver hospital where he died of his injuries, said police.

A suspect was arrested and police said it was not a random act as the suspect and victim knew each other.

The Canadian Criminal Code, under section 231 7, defines second degree murder as “All murder that is not first degree murder is second degree murder.”
