Mcclintic back in court over jailhouse brawl


KITCHENER, Ont. — Terri-lynne Mcclintic is going back to court.

Mcclintic, who pleaded guilty in 2010 to first-degree murder in the abduction and killing of eight-year-old Victoria (Tori) Stafford, will be on trial in a Kitchener courtroom on Sept. 12 for assault causing bodily harm.

The charges stem from an alleged jailhouse brawl between Mcclintic and Aimee Mcintyre, a fellow inmate at Grand Valley Institutio­n for Women, where Mcclintic is serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years.

Mcintyre is serving a life sentence for first-degree murder after a jury found her guilty in 2010 of instructin­g two men to kill her former lover.

Mcclintic, 21, has been a key witness for the Crown in the ongoing trial of Michael Rafferty, who is charged with abducting, sexually assaulting and murdering Tori. Rafferty, 31, has plead not guilty. She testified that she killed Tori, but it was Rafferty, her former boyfriend, who wanted her to abduct the girl for his sexual purposes.
