Andrew Berry trial to begin Monday in Vancouver
The high-profile trial of an Oak Bay father accused of killing his two young daughters is set to begin Monday in Vancouver, with jury selection expected to wrap up Wednesday.
Andrew Berry is charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of six-year-old Chloe Berry and four-year-old Aubrey Berry.
The bodies of the sisters were discovered in their father's Beach Drive apartment on Christmas Day 2017.
The BC Prosecution Service says the trial is scheduled to last up to four months.
The children's mother, Sarah Cotton, raised money last year for two initiatives in the girls' honour; the Mary Manning Centre, which counsels children affected by abuse; and the Chloe and Aubrey Berry Scholarship Fund at Christ Church Cathedral School, where Chloe was a Grade 1 student.
