Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Quebec law protects criminals:
Just claim "temporary insanity"
And you are free to kill:
No one is safe in Montreal, Quebec,
Where corruption rules.

MONTREAL - The Crown will ask Quebec's highest court to review a decision to grant bail to a former doctor facing murder charges in the killing of his two children.

Guy Turcotte was given bail two weeks ago while awaiting a new trial on two counts of first-degree murder.

That trial is scheduled to take place in September 2015.

The province's director of criminal and penal prosecutions has filed a motion with the Quebec Court of Appeal, asking it to review the bail decision.

In granting bail, Superior Court Justice Andre Vincent said Turcotte does not represent a danger to society and is entitled to the presumption of innocence as he awaits the new proceedings.

Turcotte, 42, is charged in the stabbing deaths of Olivier, 5, and Anne-Sophie, 3, at a rented family home north of Montreal in early 2009.

A jury found Turcotte not criminally responsible in 2011 and he was released from a psychiatric institution the following year.

The appeals court overturned that verdict last November and ordered a new trial.
