Former Canadian Football League player charged with 2009 murder
VANCOUVER—A former wide receiver with the Canadian Football League’s B.C. Lions made his first court appearance following a charge of second-degree murder more than nine years after a woman’s death.
Joshua Boden’s lawyer said outside provincial court Monday his client intends to plead not guilty in connection with the death of 33-year-old Kimberly
Hallgarth, whose body was found in a Burnaby, B.C., home in March 2009.
Lawyer Kevin Westell would not comment on his
client’s reaction to the charge coming so long after Hallgarth was discovered dead.
