HALIFAX – Halifax medical student William Sandeson has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of 22-year-old Taylor Samson.
Sandeson was charged with the first-degree murder of Samson, a fellow Dalhousie University student whose body has never been found.
The 12-member jury handed down the guilty verdict today — three days after deliberations began.
People in the gallery cheered as the jury announced its verdict.
The trial heard Samson was last seen alive on video walking into Sandeson’s apartment shortly before 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 15, 2015.
Court heard Samson went to Sandeson’s apartment that night to sell him nine kilograms of marijuana for $40,000.
