Christie

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:09 pm on 13 May 2013

Akshay Chand was obsessed with the bright, bubbly 18 year old university student Christie Marceau. While out on bail for kidnapping her, Chand went to the Marceau family home, pushed his way past her mother Tracey, who answered the door and stabbed Christie to death. She died in her mother's arms. Since then, Christie's family has been on a crusade to change bail laws, give victims a greater voice and make judges more accountable for their decisions. Tracey Marceau has written a book called 'Christie: a family's tragic loss and a mother's fight for justice'.
