WINNIPEG – Two former acquaintances of an admitted serial killer are expected to testify today in the murder trial of Jeremy Skibicki.

One of those is set to provide details about the behaviour of the man charged with killing four Indigenous women.

Skibicki is facing four counts of first-degree murder for the slayings in 2022.

His lawyers have said he carried out the killings but is not criminally responsible due to mental illness.

Crown prosecutors say the killings were racially motivated and Skibicki preyed on the women at homeless shelters.

Skibicki’s ex-wife has testified that he was violent and controlling during their marriage.
