Bail decision due for Canada diplomat’s teen son in killings
MIAMI (AP) — A decision is due on whether the teenage son of a prominent Canadian diplomat should be released on bail pending trial on murder charges.
A Miami-Dade judge planned to announce Wednesday her decision in the case of 15-year-old Marc Wabafiyebazu. He is the son of Roxanne Dube, Canada’s consul general in Miami.
Wabafiyebazu faces felony murder and other charges as an adult in a March 30 shootout that killed his older brother and another teenager. Police say the slayings happened after the Wabafiyebazu brothers tried to rob marijuana dealers.
Marc Wabafiyebazu has pleaded not guilty. His mother says she is convinced he is innocent and that if her son is released on bail she will ensure he remains in the U.S. and attends all required legal proceedings.
