Trial told timeline of foster child's death can't be narrowed down

WINNIPEG - A doctor’s testimony is raising questions about the timeline in Roderick Blacksmith’s second-degree murder trial.

He’s accused of killing his 13-month old foster son, Cameron Ouskan, back in November 2008.

Dr. Marc Del Bigio told court Tuesday he couldn’t be sure when the boy’s serious head injuries were sustained, only that it was between 15 and 72 hours before he died.

Court has heard the child had contact with plenty of other people during that time.

Blacksmith told police the baby had been put to bed and when he went back later to check on the child, the boy was unresponsive and his mouth was filled with vomit.

Blacksmith told police he called the hospital, and performed CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation until help arrived.
