Crowns wraps case in Halifax jail cell death trial


The Crown has wrapped up its case at the trial of two special constables charged after a 41-year-old-man died in a Halifax jail cell.

Daniel Fraser and Cheryl Gardner have pleaded not guilty to criminal negligence causing the death of Corey Rogers.

Video shown to the jury today shows Rogers, who is intoxicated, on the floor while wearing a spit hood, which is not supposed to be used on anyone who is vomiting.

The video indicates Rogers' last movements occurred at 11:41 p-m, but Fraser doesn't attempt to rouse him until 1:39 a.m.
