Northern Manitoba Mountie to testify today in manslaughter trial

By | June 26, 2019

A Mountie charged with manslaughter in the shooting of a northern Manitoba man is expected to testify today in his own defence.

Const. Abram Letkeman is accused in the 2015 death of Steven Campbell, who was behind the wheel of a Jeep that the Mountie had tried to pull over for erratic driving.

Letkeman shot Campbell at least nine times near Thompson.

Yesterday, a police expert testified that Letkeman made a disastrous tactical decision to step in front of the vehicle before he pulled the trigger repeatedly.
