InFocus updates case of Saulteaux sisters in Saskatchewan who are lobbying for their freedom 


There is a push from the legal community in Canada to have Saulteaux sisters Nerissa and Odelia Quewezance released from prison for good.

The two sisters from Keeseekoose First Nation have spent nearly 30 years behind bars for the 2nd-degree murder of a Saskatchewan farmer.

They have always maintained that while they were there when Anthony Dolff was killed in 1994, they weren’t responsible for his death.

InFocus hears from the reporters who have been looking into the sister’s story.
