Dennis Oland’s appeal of conviction for father’s murder continues today


The appeal of Dennis Oland‘s conviction for the murder of his father Richard Oland continues today in Fredericton at the New Brunswick Court of Appeal.

Yesterday, Dennis Oland’s lawyer said speculation that wasn’t backed by evidence resulted in his client’s conviction for second-degree murder.

Alan Gold told the appeal court judges that the Crown’s theory Oland killed his father in a fit of rage was “unsupported by an evidentiary foundation.”

Richard Oland was found face down in a pool of blood on the floor of his Saint John office on July 7th, 2011.
