The man found guilty of manslaughter in the death of 15-year-old Jane Creba is losing an appeal for his convictions.
Creba was killed while shopping with her family on Yonge Street on Boxing Day in 2005. The teen was caught in the crossfire of a shootout between two rival gangs.
Louis Raphael Woodcock and Tyshaun Barnett were found guilty of manslaughter, and Jorrell Simpson-Rowe and Jeremiah Valentine were convicted of second degree murder.
Woodcock asked the Ontario’s Court of Appeal to find that the judge presiding over his 2010 trial had made several errors, including not instructing the jury on self-defense.
The Courts dismissed the appeal on the grounds the judge had not made the errors.
