Bradley Barton, the Ontario trucker acquitted of first-degree murder in the killing of Cindy Gladue, will face a new trial for manslaughter, the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled. Gladue was found dead in the bathtub of a motel bathroom in Edmonton eight years ago, after engaging in paid sex with Barton for two consecutive nights. The court found that “rape shield” laws were not followed during Barton’s trial.
