Jury says Vancouver senior is guilty of 2 counts of 2nd-degree murder
VANCOUVER - A Vancouver man has been found guilty of second-degree murder in two 2017 deaths.
A jury ruled Leonard Landrick is guilty of two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of 57-year-old Sandra McInnes and 51-year-old Neil Croker. The jury did not make a recommendation to the judge on when Landrick should be eligible for parole.
Their bodies were found in Landrick's West End apartment building on July 9, 2017. Landrick was arrested that same day. He was 73 at the time.
The victims and Landrick all lived in the same building on Morton Avenue and all three knew each other.
When they died, McInnes was on the building's board and Croker was the building manager.
Defence counsel said it would like to argue Landrick is not criminally responsible, but Crown counsel disagreed, saying there was no foundation for the argument. The judge has not yet made a decision.
