Stephan Trial: Defence hammers away at medical examiner testimony

- Advertisement -
Testimony continuing Friday (July 12) from the medical examiner who completed the autopsy of David and Collet Stephan’s son, Ezekial.
Dr. Bamidele Adeagbo told the court that the goal of an autopsy is to find the “most likely” cause of death. He notes that all the factors, tests, symptoms and sequence of events leading up to the 19 month old’s death indicated bacterial meningitis.
However, defence lawyer Jason Demers pointed out that while meningitis may be the “most likely” cause of death, it is possible that Ezekial could have died from something else, a statement that Dr. Adeagbo agreed with.
Demers also telling the court Friday that Dr. Adeagbo’s testimony is moving along slower than expected and he may need an additional day to complete his questioning.
The re-trial is expected to take a break next week and resume on July 24th.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
