A Calgary woman serving a life sentence for the killing and dismembering of her roommate has been denied a request for a faint hope hearing.
Deborah Point was convicted of second degree murder with no chance of parole for 20 years in the death of Audrey Trudeau.
Alberta’s Chief Justice says the fact that Point denied involvement in the brutal murder and dismemberment of Trudeau, despite overwhelming evidence against her, means it’s unlikely a jury would reduce her parole ineligibility.
Trudeau disappeared in February 1999, and five months later her dismembered body was found in cardboard boxes inside a southwest Calgary garage. She had been stabbed repeatedly in the head.
Point was arrested two days later. The motive was believed to be over sex or money.
