Dr Charles Smith Inquest

April 20, 2007 permalink

Ontario's Coroner, Barry A McLellan, issued a report yesterday saying there had been mistakes in numerous autopsies conducted by Dr Charles Smith leading to false criminal convictions, some of parents for killing their own children. The public outcry has induced Premier Dalton McGuinty to call an inquest into Dr Smith. For the full story on this matter, refer to the website Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted, and look through their news archives.
