Appeal to be heard in Panhandler murder case
The Ontario Court of Appeal will start hearing an appeal in the so called Panhandler murder case of 2007, starting next week.
This after the woman found guilty of murdering a St. Catharines man insists they locked away the wrong person.
Nicole Kish of Hamilton was found guilty two years ago in the death of 32 year old Ross Hammond.
Hammond was stabbed repeatedly after an encounter with a group ofpanhandlers on Queen Street West.
It all started when a fight broke out, after a woman in Kish's group, asked Hammond and his friend for money while they were using an ATM.
Kish's lawyer will argue that despite the guilty verdict there are holes in the Crown's case, namely that no one saw Kish with a knife in the area where Hammond was stabbed to death.
