Jury finds guilt on all counts
The sentencing for Kevin Addison is set to take place next month.
That’s after a BC Supreme Court jury in Nanaimo found Kevin Addison guilty of two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.
During the trial the Crown argued Addison was consumed by revenge after he was laid off in 2008 from the Western Forest Products mill and not rehired.
Addison’s defence lawyer had argued his client’s violent behaviour was out of character and the result of depression.
Mill employees Michael Lunn and Fred McEachern died in the shooting.
Tony Sudar and Earl Kelly were shot but survived.
