Sandeson murder verdict

June 19, 2017

A medical student has been found guilty of first degree murder in the death of fellow Dalhousie student Taylor Samson.

William Sandeson was convicted yesterday by a jury after 22 hours of deliberations.  One of the key considerations was the fact Samson’s body has never been found.  His mother says she’ll keep searching for her son’s body, with or without the help of his killer.

Sandeson will be back in court July 11th when victim impact statements will be read.  He gets an automatic life sentence with no parole for 25 years.
