A star witness for an Alberta Crown prosecutor says she was fed evidence by police while stoned during “coercive” interrogations to build a murder case against a Cree woman, according to court documents filed with the Court of Appeal of Alberta.
Three days after she was sentenced to life in prison for murdering a man with a knife through the neck, Connie Oakes, wearing a grey T-shirt and grey sweat pants, picked up the telephone receiver on the other side of the Plexiglas in the visiting area at the Medicine Hat, Alta., remand centre and said she didn’t do it.
