The B.C. Supreme Court is expected to decide Monday whether a man who admitted killing his three children in Merritt should face life in prison.
The fate of Allan Dwayne Schoenborn, 41, who has been tried on three counts of first-degree murder, is in the hands of B.C. Supreme Court Judge Robert Powers. Powers heard the case without a jury during the three-month trial in Kamloops.
Powers is expected to decide whether Schoenborn was driven by mental illness or more sinister motives when he stabbed his 10-year-old daughter to death and smothered his eight- and five-year-old sons, whose bodies were found in their mobile home in Merritt in April 2008.
