Lawyer hopes for fair trial

The lawyer for a Victoria man on trial for allegedly killing his two daughters Christmas day is criticizing the police following a court appearance Thursday.

Andrew Berry is charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of his daughters Chloe, 6, and Aubrey, 4.

His lawyer, Kevin McCullough said, he hopes his client receives a fair trial.

McCullough took issue with a statement made by police after Berry was arrested that no other suspects were being sought in the killings.

"I know it's very difficult but I'm still very hopeful that the presumption of innocence is alive and well and that people don't pre-judge this matter," McCullough said.

Berry remains in custody and has a court order to have no contact with Sarah Cotton, the girls' mother who he separated from in 2013.

Berry will next appear in court February 22nd.
