The trial of Syrian refugee Ibrahim Ali began yesterday nearly six years after the death of Marrisa Shen in Burnaby, B.C. Ali is facing a first-degree murder charge for the death of the young girl. He had only been in Canada for approximately three months before he is alleged to have killed Shen.
Rebel News previously reported on the case:
According to Global News, homicide investigators described her death at the time as a "random attack."
Ali's trial has been postponed five times already so many are hoping now is the time that justice is finally served. Today's trial is taking place in the Supreme Court of British Columbia.
Rebel News' Drea Humphrey is live tweeting from the trial in Vancouver.
