Trial of Winnipeg serial killer expected to hear testimony from DNA expert – Winnipeg

The Winnipeg trial of admitted serial killer Jeremy Skibicki is expected to continue Tuesday with testimony from a DNA expert.

Court has heard that DNA from three of the four victims was found in Skibicki’s home after police searched it in May 2022.

Skibicki has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder for the slayings of Rebecca Contois, Morgan Harris, Marcedes Myran and an unidentified women Indigenous leaders have named Buffalo Woman.

Crown prosecutors say the killings were racially motivated and Skibicki preyed on the vulnerable women at homeless shelters.
