Trial to Begin for Former Kingsville Fire Chief

Testimony is expected to begin Thursday in the trial of a former Kingsville fire chief.

Bob Kissner, 62, is charged with 17 sex-related charges including sexual assault, sexual exploitation and sexual interference.

Defence lawyer Ken Marley says there are eight complainants in the case.

Kissner was arrested in December 2016 by the OPP.

Pre-trial motions have taken place over the past several days this week.

The trial is scheduled for three weeks.

Kissner has since retired.
