Ian Bush attempted murder trial set to begin


OTTAWA – The man charged in the attempted murder of a decorated war veteran is due in court Monday.

Ian Bush, 62, faces an attempted murder charge, as well as robbery and forcible confinement charges, for a home invasion and attack on Ernest Cote in 2014.

The decorated 101-year-old veteran, who landed in Normandy on D-Day, was left in his home with a bag over his head.

The trial could last until December.

Cote survived the attack but has since passed on; his death was unrelated to this case.

Meantime, in May, Bush was found guilty of first-degree murder in the 2007 deaths of retired tax judge Alban Garon, his wife Raymonde, and the couple’s friend, Marie-Claire Beniskos.

The three bodies were found, bound gagged and beaten, in the Garon’s Riverside Drive condo.
