The Supreme Court of Canada has dismissed the appeals launched by two men convicted in the swarming death of Lukas Strasser-Hird nearly six years ago in Calgary.
Assmar Shlah and Franz Cabrera were convicted in 2016 of second-degree murder in the death of Lukas Strasser-Hird.
Strasser-Hird, who was 18, was beaten and stabbed numerous times in 2013.
Both Shlah and Carbera filed appeals that argued that the jury’s verdict was unreasonable.
In a split decision, the Alberta Court of Appeal dismissed the appeals, saying the jury verdict reflected considered decision-making.
