Sasha Bailey Murder Trial

Sasha Bailey lost his life during the year of the gun in 2005. Sasha Bailey, 22, was shot to death on May 8 following an argument with several men outside a pizza shop on Danforth Ave.

3 suspects were eventually arrested for his murder and today the Crown dropped first-degree murder charges against Waheb Almaktari, saying they couldn't prove he knew his brother, who is accused in the murder, had a gun.

Despite that decision, Sasha Bailey's mom did leave court feeling that some justice was served.
Rutal Hankey, 25, pleaded guilty to manslaughter, and was sentenced to 8 years. The trial for the alleged shooter, Walid Almaktari, 25, begins in April.
