The widower of fallen RCMP Cst. Sarah Beckett says he and other family members are dismayed by repeated delays in bringing the man accused in her death to trial.
The case against Kenneth Jacob Fenton was adjourned for the eighth time on Thursday.
The 28-year old faces multiple charges including impaired driving causing death in connection with the crash that killed Cst. Beckett in Langford last April.
The 32-year old is survived by her husband Brad Aschenbrenner and two young sons.
“As a family, we continue to be victimized by a judicial system that doesn’t adequately consider the interests of those harmed,” said Aschenbrenner in a statement issued by his lawyer.
“Despite the passage of over a year, Mr. Fenton has not entered a plea and our family has no closure.”
Aschenbrenner did add that he thinks the matter should not be resolved on the basis of what is expedient, but on the basis of what is right.
Still, he is troubled by the repeated delays.
“We are left to wonder who is standing up for Sarah?”
Fenton is scheduled to make his next court appearance on May 18th.
