Dennis Oland gets bail

The Supreme Court of Canada says that Dennis Oland was wrongly denied bail during his appeal of his second-degree murder conviction in the killing of his father Richard Oland.

The unanimous decision breaks new ground on bail eligibility in appeal matters and will have influence beyond the sensational case.

Dennis Oland is no longer in custody, as he waits for a new trial.

He was earlier convicted of murdering his father in his Saint John office in July of 2011.
