Isabelle Mathieu Le Soleil It is now possible to identify the two small victims of Wendake, Olivier, 5 years old, and Alex, 2 years old. The publication bans that covered their identity were lifted at the family's request. Their father, Michaël Chicoine, is accused of the murder without premeditation.
The judicial record of Chicoine, 30, returned to court on Wednesday morning for a stage of disclosure of the evidence.
At the request of the relatives of the two victims, the Crown prosecutor Me Thomas Jacques requested and obtained from the court the lifting of the publication bans which prevented the identification of victims and witnesses. This is the reason why until now, the media had named the accused without saying the link that united him to the children found dead in a house on Chef Nicolas-Vincent Street in Wendake, on October 11.
The representative of the prosecution also told Judge Réna Émond of the Court of Quebec that the disclosure of the police evidence to the defense lawyer Me Pierre Gagnon would continue for several more weeks since the investigation is still ongoing. .
The parties will take stock of disclosure again in early January.
Dressed in a blue shirt, Michaël Chicoine appeared calm, seated in the videoconference parlor of the Quebec Detention Center.
If he wishes to submit a request for provisional release during the proceedings, he must apply to the Superior Court.
