Hearing held to review treatment for man who killed four people in Fredericton – New Brunswick

A New Brunswick review board has begun a hearing today to review the treatment order for the man found not criminally responsible in the 2018 killing of four people in Fredericton.

Matthew Raymond is being held at the Restigouche Hospital Centre in Campbellton, N.B.

In December a judge deemed Raymond “high risk” and ordered that he be detained in a high-security hospital.

Raymond shot and killed Donnie Robichaud and Bobbie Lee Wright, as well as Fredericton police constables Sara Burns and Robb Costello on Aug. 10, 2018.

During the nine-week first-degree murder trial, the defence argued Raymond had a mental illness and believed he was defending himself from demons.

The review board is to meet annually to review Raymond’s status.
