Forman stoic in court

A Kelowna man accused of killing his wife and two young daughters has had his case put over.

Jacob Forman was stoic as he briefly appeared via video in Supreme Court.

The 34 year old worked as a supervisor at a local HVAC company and was arrested at his home on Dec. 19, 2017. The bodies of Forman’s wife Clara and their two children, Karina, 8, and Yesenia, 7, were found inside their home on Bolotzky Court.

Clara Forman, 33, had worked at GoodLife in Kelowna as a fitness instructor. She moved to Canada almost 10 years ago after meeting Forman while he was studying to become a preacher in Mexico. The pair moved back to B.C. after marrying.

Forman was originally charged with three counts of second degree murder, but two of the charges were upped to first-degree murder on March 15.

His previous lawyer, Glenn Verdurmen, told Kelowna court in July that Forman wanted a new lawyer. Raymond Dieno has been chosen to fill that role.

Forman only responded with a softly spoken "yes, sir," when asked questions on Monday.

The matter has been put over to Oct. 10, when Forman will again appear by video.
