Schoenborn decision to wait

The lawyer for a man who killed his three children and was found not criminally responsible because of a mental disorder says a BC Review Board will need at least a month to decide the latest request for temporary absences from a psychiatric facility.

Rishi Gill says Allan Schoenborn was before the review board Thursday, requesting limited, staff-supported community outings.

Schoenborn has been held at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Coquitlam since 2010, after being convicted of killing his 10-year-old daughter and two sons, aged eight and five, in April 2008, in Merritt.

A B.C. Supreme Court trial heard Schoenborn believed he was saving them from a life of sexual and physical abuse.

Since then, a B.C. Supreme Court judge has ruled against an application to have Schoenborn declared a dangerous offender.

In 2015, the review board gave the psychiatric hospital the discretion to grant Schoenborn escorted outings.
