CALGARY – A trial has been delayed for a man charged in the death of his four-year-old daughter in Calgary.
A trial was to begin Monday for Oluwatosin Oluwafemi, but a defence lawyer asked for an adjournment due to a colleague’s medical emergency.
Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Paul Jeffrey granted the application, saying that an alternative for a fair trial could not be found and a new trial date would be scheduled next week.
Oluwafemi is charged with the second-degree murder of Olive Rebekah Oluwafemi, who was found to be in cardiac arrest in 2014.
The girl was pronounced dead in hospital.
Her father was later arrested in Ontario and transported to Calgary to face the charge.
