Pickton is in the news, again

And the nightmare continues for the victims' families:

“B.C.'s criminal justice branch which oversees crown prosecutors has said that it will not proceed with the other 20 counts of first-degree murder against Pickton because he is already serving the maximum amount of time in prison before eligibility for parole. However the crown said it was prepared to re-try on all 26 counts of first degree murder if a new trial was ordered. There is a possibility now that the case will go to the Supreme Court of Canada. ...

Cynthia Cardinale, the sister of Georgina Papin, one of Pickton's victims, said ... 'We don't know how to feel at this point. This seems to never end and we continually have to think about this.'
