Scarborough's Boris Panovski has been found guilty of the 2014 murder of Don Frigo - July 5, 2018
Boris Panovski, a 74-year-old dog trainer and hair stylist from Scarborough, has been found guilty of the 2014 murder of Don Frigo in the Hullett Wildlife Conservation Area.
After a trial that lasted several weeks, the jury came in with a verdict of guilty for Panovski on both the count of killing Frigo and for aggravated assault in regards to Frigo’s wife, Eva Willer Frigo on that fateful day in Central Huron.
The jury came in with its verdict on Friday. It is still unclear whether Panovski plans to appeal, although his lawyers have strongly recommended it.
Panovski’s defence largely hinged on his lawyers, John Fennel and Christopher Hicks, claiming that no one could identify Panovski as being at the scene of the crime that day. During her testimony, Willer Frigo said she couldn’t positively identify Panovski as being the shooter that day.
According to Jane Sims of The London Free Press, after the court found him guilty, Panovski leaned over in the prisoner’s box, wanting to talk to reporters and inviting them to the jail to hear his side of the story.
Victim impact statements will be heard on July 5 in Goderich and at that time Panovski will be sentenced.
