After 36 years a convicted child killer is out on bail, awaiting a new trial.
Tallio, then 17, pleaded guilty in 1983 to the second-degree murder of a child, but has maintained his innocence ever since. The University of B.C.’s Innocence Project began working on Tallio’s case more than 10 years ago, and his lawyers, now supported by the Legal Services Society, filed a notice of appeal in 2016. His appeal is expected to be heard later this year.
