     News: Suspected serial killer trial in January

    Sexual ViolenceVANCOUVER, Canada (AFP) - The murder trial of Robert William Pickton, suspected in the killings of as many as 32 prostitutes, is set for January, a court heard.

    Pickton, a pig farmer from a suburb of this West Coast city, is charged with the murders of 15 women. Prosecutors earlier said they will lay seven more murder charges, and are considering a further 10, for a total of 32. Prosecution spokesman Geoffrey Gaul said Thursday that the trial is expected to take at least eight months, and lawyers on both sides are examining 500,000 pages of evidence. Pickton did not appear in court Thursday, but listened from his jail via video link. His next court appearance is May 25. Pickton was investigated by a police task force looking into disappearances of 69 women, most of them involved in drug addiction and prostitution, from Vancouvers squalid Downtown Eastside area. He was arrested and charged with murder in February 2002, after police found human DNA and the personal belongings of some of missing women. The police have said the investigation is continuing, with forensic scientists sifting through rubble removed from Picktons pig farm and taken to police laboratories. Origionally published

    The nobler and more perfect a thing is, the later and slower it is in arriving at maturity. A man reaches the maturity of his reasoning powers and mental faculties harly before the age of twenty-eight; a woman, at eighteen. And then, too, in the case of woman, it is only reason of a sort--very niggardly in its dimensions. That is why women remain children their whole life long, never seeing anything but what is quite close to them, cleaving to the present moment, taking appearence for reality, and preferring trifles to matters of the first importance. -Arthur Schopenhauer, "On Women" (1851)
