A man accused of killing two Metis hunters on a rural Alberta road is scheduled to testify today.

Anthony Bilodeau has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the deaths of Jacob Sansom and Maurice Cardinal in March of 2020.

His lawyer, Brian Beresh, has told the jury trial that the 33-year-old plans to take the witness stand.

Bilodeau’s father, Roger Bilodeau, who is 58, has also pleaded not guilty to the same charges.

The Crown has argued that the father and son thought the hunters were thieves who had earlier been on their property, so they followed them on the highway and Anthony Bilodeau shot both men without justification.
