Markel Jason Downey, 22, of Cole Harbour, N.S., has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Ashley MacLean Kearse, who died four years after she was paralyzed in a triple shooting and home invasion.

Downey was arrested July 11.

He was initially acquitted of 28 charges, including three of attempted murder, at a trial that concluded in February 2017.

The Crown appealed Downey's acquittal a year later. And in April, the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal agreed that the original trial judge made "serious errors" in his decision to dismiss the case against Downey.

Officer convicted of shooting Sammy Yatim wants Supreme Court to hear his case

  Officer convicted of shooting Sammy Yatim wants Supreme Court to hear his case Const. James Forcillo is asking the Supreme Court of Canada to allow him to appeal his second-degree murder conviction in the shooting death of Sammy Yatim five years ago. Forcillo's lawyers, Michael Lacy, Joseph Wilkinson and Bryan Badali, filed the application seeking an appeal on June 26. In an unusual verdict, a jury acquitted Forcillo of second-degree murder but convicted him of attempted murder in connection with Yatim's death aboard a Dundas streetcar on the night of July 27, 2013. Forcillo was sentenced to six years in jail — one year above the mandatory minimum for attempted murder.

Downey is scheduled to appear in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Halifax Thursday.

TORONTO - A Toronto police officer convicted of attempted murder in the shooting death of a troubled teen on an empty streetcar is seeking leave to bring his case before Canada's top court. Const. James Forcillo fired two separate volleys at 18-year-old Sammy Yatim, who was standing alone and holding a small knife, in an incident that ignited public outrage after a bystander's video came to light. In 2016, a jury acquitted Forcillo of the more serious charge of second-degree murder related to the first volley of shots — which killed the teen — but found him guilty of attempted murder related to the second hail of bullets, fired seconds later while Yatim was lying on hi
