Trial for stabbings underway

CALGARY—A trial was to begin today for a man charged after five young people were stabbed at a party where they were celebrating the end of the university school year.

Matthew de Grood, 24, faces five counts of first-degree murder in what police have said is Calgary’s worst mass killing.

He’s been in custody since shortly after the attack on April 15, 2014.
