PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - An RCMP officer says a young B.C. man accused of murdering four people denied killing a 15-year-old girl the night he was arrested four years ago.
Const. Aaron Kehler told the murder trial in Prince George, B.C., that he pulled over Cody Legebokoff after seeing his truck speeding out of a remote logging road, and then saw blood on the man, in his truck and on a knife and pipe wrench.
Kehler says after Loren Leslie's body was discovered up the same logging road, Legebokoff told him that he didn't kill the girl and instead that she killed herself.
Kehler says he lost his composure and swore as he asked Legebokoff: if he didn't kill the teen, then who did?
The Crown has said Legebokoff later admitted to having met Leslie online but repeated his claims that Leslie killed herself by hitting herself with a pipe wrench and stabbing herself in the neck.
The Crown alleges Legebokoff murdered Leslie, as well as Jill Stuchenko, Cynthia Maas and Natasha Montgomery.
