The first-degree murder trial of Marissa Shephard is scheduled to continue Tuesday morning in a Moncton courtroom with cross-examination of the RCMP officer who took Devin Morningstar's statement.

Marissa Shephard is charged in the death of 18-year-old Baylee Wylie in December 2015. She is also charged with arson with disregard for human life.

In court Monday Cpl. Laurent Lemieux testified about the statement he took from Devin Morningstar.

In a video recording of Morningstar's statement to police, he spoke at length about the night that Wylie was murdered.

The court heard that Wylie was stabbed about 200 times.

Morningstar told an undercover officer he stabbed Wylie three times.

Decision expected in Toronto cop's attempted murder appeal .
TORONTO - A decision is expected today in the appeal of a Toronto police officer who was convicted of attempted murder in the shooting death of a troubled teen. In July 2013, Const. James Forcillo fired two separate volleys at Sammy Yatim, an 18-year-old who had consumed ecstasy and was wielding a small knife on an empty streetcar. Court heard the first round of shots was the one that killed him. Yatim's killing set off a wave of public outrage and protests after a video of the shooting went viral.Forcillo was convicted of attempted murder related to the second volley, but was acquitted of the more serious charge of second-degree murder.
