OSHAWA, Ont. – The defense is set to deliver final submissions today in the case of a man accused of murdering a woman and her two children east of Toronto.
Cory Fenn has pleaded not guilty to three counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of 39-year-old Krassimira Pejcinovski, his 13-year-old daughter, Venellia, and their 15-year-old son, Roy.
Prosecutors have said that Fenn killed all three in a fit of anger on March 14, 2018, in Ajax, Ontario, after Krassimira Pejcinovski broke up with him.
The man allegedly killed 3 family members at the Ajax home after the breakup, says Crown in the final filing.
The mother and daughter were found stabbed to death, while the boy was strangled.
Fenn, who is representing himself, will be assisted by his former attorney in the final presentations.
The 33-year-old defendant did not call the defense and repeatedly told the court last week that he was a “sovereign king.”
The court heard that Fenn told a detective after the deaths that he was in a state of cocaine psychosis and would never have hurt Pejcinovski otherwise.
