Ontario high profile fraud case trial begins

The trial for a married Peterborough couple accused of using donation money earmarked for a special needs hockey team for their own personal use is underway.

People could make online donations through an email account that also belonged to the couple, according to the lawyer for the Crown. Over a…

The York police homicide unit received a report that the woman had been killed. When they got to the scene, they found the woman dead.
