Delisle makes bid for release pending appeal on murder conviction
Appeal Court Judge Richard Wagner of Montreal has been named to hear the request for freedom of former judge Jacques Delisle.
Delisle is a former Appeal Court Judge in Quebec City who was convicted last month of murdering his disabled wife at their home in 2009.
He is appealing the first degree murder conviction and wants to be released from prison pending the decision.
The Crown wants him to stay locked up given the seriousness of the crime.
The bail hearing will be held today.
