OSHAWA, Ont. – Prosecutors in a triple murder trial in Ontario say a 33-year-old man killed a woman and her two children in a fit of anger after a breakup.
Crown attorney Mike Newell says in final filings that Cory Fenn knew exactly what he was doing when he killed all three on March 14, 2018 in Ajax, Ontario.

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.
The mother and her daughter were found stabbed to death while the boy was strangled.

The court heard that Fenn and Krassimira Pejcinovski had parted ways hours earlier.
Fenn told a detective after the deaths that he was in a state of cocaine psychosis and would never have hurt Pejcinovski otherwise.
Fenn, who is representing himself, has not summoned a defense and repeatedly told the court that he was a “sovereign king”.
