A man who had his convictions overturned after he was found guilty in relation to a Guysborough Co. stabbing will not face a new trial.
RCMP say a man suffered non-life-threatening injuries from multiple stab wounds at a party in Sunnyville in June 2013.
John Arthur Borden, 47, pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, aggravated assault, uttering threats and possession of a weapon; jurors found him guilty of aggravated assault and weapon possession, and he was sentenced to five years in prison.
Members of the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal said trial fairness issues were a factor, and Borden’s convictions were quashed in June 2017.
The Crown recently decided they won’t proceed with a new trial in the case.
