SAINT-JEROME, Que. — The ex-wife of a former Quebec doctor who is charged with murdering their children says she never thought he could kill them.
Isabelle Gaston is back on the stand today at Guy Turcotte’s first-degree murder trial.
Turcotte is facing two counts of first-degree murder in the 2009 slayings of Olivier, 5, and Anne-Sophie, 3.
On more than one occasion, Gaston told the jury under cross-examination by his lawyer she never thought he could hurt them.
She described their marriage as toxic but also noted that Turcotte was not a bad father.
Turcotte, 43, has pleaded not guilty to the charges but admitted through his lawyers last week to causing the children’s deaths.
