Judge reserves decision in Garnier bail revocation hearing

A Halifax judge has reserved his decision on an application from the Crown to revoke bail from a Nova Scotia man awaiting trial in the death of an off-duty Truro police officer.

Christopher Garnier will remain in custody until April 18th, when Judge Peter Rosinski is expected to announce his decision.

The 29-year-old was arrested in Cape Breton in February and remains in custody after police said they could not locate him at either of the two places where he was allowed to live under conditions of his release.

Garnier is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of Catherine Campbell in 2015.

The two day hearing wrapped up Wednesday, and proceedings are under a publication ban.

Garnier's father was removed from court on Tuesday after a sheriff believed he was attempting to communicate with his wife while she was testifying.
