Allen Benn Trial - May 25, 2009

The trial of Allen Benn went underway and the crown currently is arguing that he was killed because he broke the “no snitching” rule.

Shaun Blake and Mackel Peterkin, both 20, have pleaded not guilty. Two youth have also been charged in Allen Benn’s murder and they will be tried separately in youth court.

Allen Benn was stabbed in April 2007 near Jane and Finch for supposedly warning lottery winner Richard Poku to “be careful because people in the neighbourhood were ... looking at him hard”. Why this lottery winner that won $1.1 million still lived in the ghetto, I’ll never understand, but whatever.

The trial continues throughout the week.
