Decision On Allan Schoenborn'S Request For Limited Release Not Immediately Due

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 11 Jan, 2019

    COQUITLAM, B.C. — The lawyer for the man who killed his three children and was found not criminally responsible because of a mental disorder says a BC Review Board will need at least a month to decide the latest request for temporary absences from a psychiatric facility.

     

    Rishi Gill says Allan Schoenborn was before the review board Thursday requesting limited, staff-supported community outings.


    Schoenborn has been held at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Coquitlam, B.C., since 2010, after being convicted of killing his 10-year-old daughter and two sons, aged eight and five, in April 2008.


    A B.C. Supreme Court trial heard Schoenborn believed he was saving them from a life of sexual and physical abuse.


    Since then, a B.C. Supreme Court judge has ruled against an application to have Schoenborn declared a dangerous offender.


    In 2015, the review board gave the psychiatric hospital the discretion to grant Schoenborn escorted outings.
