Hulla Murder Update

For the first time in almost three years, David Colter is a free man. He was cleared of second-degree murder charges Wednesday, after information that may have come from a recently arrested co-accused. Both the former suspect and the family of the man he was accused of killing are stunned by the sudden change.

Salim Jabaji was stabbed to death at the Docks Nightclub in February 2001. Colter was arrested and charged in the crime, and the victim’s family made the long trek from Niagara Falls more than 150 times to watch justice being served. Now they don’t know what to think.

“It seems to me that we are back to ground zero,” laments Jack Jabaji, Salim’s dad. “The mistake here is with the justice [system]. They kept delaying it, delaying it, all the time.”

Colter is both relieved and amazed by the unexpected turn of events. “I think there’s a problem with the justice system here,” he notes in a statement. “Because this has cost me three years of my life.” His lawyer, Rob Nutall, echoes those sentiments. “It's a tragedy that it's taken so long for the Crown Attorney to withdraw the charge, but thank God the nightmare's over for David,” he says.

So what happened to change the Crown’s mind? It’s not immediately clear, but it may centre on the other man accused in the crime. Jeff Tuck was out on bail, but was re-arrested in last week’s huge drug raid in Markham. It’s believed information gleaned from his new detention may have lead to the sudden switch. Tuck will be back in court Thursday.

I remember that too. I was spinning in the up-and-comers room, and when everything was settled, I got kicked off the decks mid-set by Flex (I think), because he was supposed to play the main room. At around 3am or something they moved the headliners into the third room.

Anyways, I think what the story is getting at is that the two were charged with murder, but because of the trial of outcome of the trial of one of the suspects, the other was cleared of the charges. In other words, they determined that the one guy was the only guilty one, and the other just happened to be there when it happened and did not participate in the crime. That is my best guess anyways.

Cheers ... Ian :)

there's an easy way to keep it straight. Lucky was stabbed in the face. That's why they call him Lucky. Chucky is a retarded doll.

It happened about three feet behind me. Unfortunately I wasn't of much help because my back was to the incident.
