The trial of a Six Nations man facing two counts of murder in the deaths of Richard Powless and Elaine Laforme continues Wednesday at the Cayuga Court House.

In January of 2012, Six Nations and Haldimand Firefighters were called to the scene of a house fire on Mississauga Road on the Mississaugas of the New Credit Reserve, adjacent to Six Nations. When firefighters arrived the house was fully engulfed in flames. While battling the blaze they discovered the charred remains of two people inside the home. Police and the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office were called in to do a full investigation of the incident.

The bodies were later identified as those of Richard Powless and Elaine Laforme.

Glenn Owen Hill was arrested a short time later in an inebriated state walking down Mississauga Road and later charged with two counts of First Degree Murder.

There is a publication ban on the information being presented to a jury of eight men and four women by prosecuting attorney Alexandra Paparella and defense lawyer Michael Wendl. The trial is expected to continue for another two weeks. The next court date is set for Wednesday, March 11th, at 10 am at the Cayuga Court House.
