Convicted Murderer Loses Appeal of Second Degree Murder Conviction in 2013 Death – Calgary | The Canadian News

The Alberta Court of Appeals dismissed an appeal from a man who killed a University of Calgary student eight years ago.

Mitchell Harkes was seeking to overturn his second-degree murder conviction of 20-year-old Brett Wiese.

A jury found Harkes guilty in 2019. It was the second time he had been convicted.

Another jury previously found him guilty of the same charge, but the Alberta Court of Appeal ordered a new trial.

Wiese died after being stabbed during a house party in Brentwood in January 2013.
