An Edmonton judge has changed his murder verdict to manslaughter in the high-profile case of Travis Vader. The judge earlier convicted Vader of second-degree murder in the deaths of missing seniors Lyle and Marie McCann. But in doing so he used an outdated section of the Criminal Code. The defence had applied for a mistrial. Lawyer Nathan Whitling says he's disappointed in the manslaughter verdict and that the case been plagued with problems since it began more than six years ago. (He expects to file an appeal. Two weeks have been set aside for a sentencing hearing beginning December 12th.)
