A hearing opens today on whether Glen Douglas Race should be found not criminally responsible for murdering two men from the Halifax area in May 2007. Race, 32, pleaded guilty in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Halifax in September to second-degree murder in the death of Michael Paul Knott and first-degree murder in the killing of Trevor Charles Brewster. Defence lawyer Joel Pink then applied to have Race, who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 2001, declared not criminally responsible by reason of mental disorder.
