Christopher Campbell took his first step towards securing a not criminally responsible finding in the murder of a woman in a residence located at 1185 Alexander Ave on April 13, 2013.
Judge Brian Colli set the wheels in motion after ordering a psychiatric assessment of the accused killer who is believed to have significant mental health issues. Those issues were confirmed by the WPS when they issued a public warning indicating Campbell had been treated for mental illness in the past and was suspected to be “off” his medication.
“Caution should be used if approached by Campbell as his behaviour may be unpredictable and he may be violent,” the news release said.
Campbell was subsequently arrested in Downtown Regina without incident.
The WPS has been tight-lipped with information regarding the incident and have yet to release the cause of death or identity of the victim. Media reports suggest the victim was Campbell’s mother. Police Insider sources confirm these reports and also indicate the woman’s death was caused by blunt force trauma.
The case was remanded to June 3, 2013.
Police confirm victim’s identity as Rosina Campbell (61), mother of accused killer Christopher Campbell.
Police indicate victim suffered upper body injuries.
