Teskey hearing delayed again

A dangerous offender hearing for Leo Teskey, the man convicted of beating an Edmonton man into a vegetative state, has been put off yet again.

A dangerous offender hearing for Leo Teskey, the man convicted of beating an Edmonton man into a vegetative state, has been put off yet again.

The victim’s wife, Lesley Miller, says she’s outraged after learning that the hearing has been postponed because Teskey’s lawyer is on vacation.

Her husband, Dougald Miller, was viciously beaten by Teskey back in 2000.

Lesley Miller says she feels like she’s been running a marathon for nine years “and someone keeps moving the . . . finish line.”

Essentially, there have been multiple trials, appeals, including one to the Supreme Court of Canada, three changes of lawyers, and changes of election.

Teskey was found guilty on all counts at a second trial last February for the assault on Dougald.

Lesley Miller has now heard from doctors that the nine years of silent inactivity in the once avid golfer have taken their toll.

Doctors have also told Lesley that Dougald has a serious infection under his skin and that she may have to prepare for the worst.

The case has been put off until July 2.
