There has been yet another delay in the trial for the man charged in Quebec's 2012 election-night shooting. Superior Court Justice Guy Cournoyer (korn-wye-AY') has postponed jury selection in Richard Henry Bain's first-degree murder trial until next May. Bain's lawyer requested the delay today, saying he has not yet been able to find a psychiatrist to conduct a new evaluation of his client. Prosecutor Dennis Galiatsatos (gah-lee-aht-SAH'-tohs) argued against the postponement. He says the delay is difficult on victims looking for closure. (Bain is charged in the slaying of lighting technician Denis Blanchette outside a Montreal nightclub on September 4th, 2012, as then-Parti Quebecois leader Pauline Marois was toasting her party's election win. He also faces two counts of attempted murder and several weapons-related charges.)
