Judge rejects not criminally responsible defence in 2015 Edmonton murder



Last Updated Thursday, August 22, 2019 7:07PM MDT

A judge has ruled that Edmonton man Silva Koshwal is criminally responsible for killing and mutilating his ex-girlfriend in August 2015.


Justice Sterling Sanderman read his verdict in the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench Thursday afternoon, ending the four-day trial.

When the trial began Monday, Sanderman told court he believed Koshwal killed Nadine Skow in her central Edmonton apartment.

The agreed statement of facts laid out a horrific series of events in which Koshwal cut out a number of Skow’s organs including her heart, which he pinned to the wall using a butcher knife.

On Thursday, Koshwal was declared guilty of second-degree murder and indignity to a human body, which carries an automatic life sentence.

Koshwal’s lawyers initially argued the 42-year-old could not be held criminally responsible for his actions due to the trauma he endured while growing up in Sudan in a period of civil war and genocide.
