Turcotte set to return to court

Guy Turcotte will be back in court in St. Jerome today where it is expected that a judge will  set the date for the start of his new trial on charges that he murdered his children.

Turcotte is a former cardiologist who was found not criminally responsible for the stabbing deaths of his five-year old son Olivier and three-year old daughter  Anne- Sophie in 2009, because of his mental state at the time.

Last November the Court of Appeal ordered a new trial and the charges of first-degree murder have been reinstated.

Turcotte was ordered to undergo treatment at the Pinel Institute and was released in December 2012.
