Crown Drops Murder Charge Against Scott Quick

By Ian Shalapata

(WINDSOR, ON) – The family of Tecumseh murder victim Nancy Galbraith-Quick were told that the crown prosecutor is dropping first degree murder charges against her estranged husband, Scott Quick.

The former teacher’s assistant at St Williams School in Emeryville was run down by a stolen mini-van in February 2006. On 11 March 2015, the OPP announced the arrest of Scott Quick at a press conference in Essex.

The official announcement of that the Windsor Crown Prosecutor will be dropping the charges was made in Superior Court today. Brian Manarin told Justice Renee Pomerance that he concluded there would be little prospect of convicting Quick, 50, in the murder. This despite the fact that Justice Lloyd Dean ruled, last December, that there was ample evidence to proceed to trial.

Scott Quick walked out of court this morning after spending almost two years in jail awaiting trial.
