Verdict in two weeks for Calgary father accused of killing daughter

Oluwatosin Oluwafemi is charged with second-degree murder in the death of his daughter Olive Rebekah

An Alberta judge will hand down her verdict March 20 in the case of a Calgary man charged with murdering his four-year-old daughter in 2014.

Oluwatosin Oluwafemi is charged with second-degree murder in the death of his daughter Olive Rebekah, who court heard suffered multiple blunt-force injuries.

The judge heard that Oluwafemi called his wife at work on Dec. 14, 2014, and she rushed home to find him performing CPR on the girl.

A paramedic testified he arrived 20 minutes later and found the girl unconscious, not breathing and in cardiac arrest.

The paramedic said he received no explanation about what happened.

The Crown says the accused was the only person in the home that could have been responsible, but the defence suggested that the girl’s mother is an equally viable suspect.
