Berry has pleaded not guilty to the crime.

The trial has been moved to Vancouver because of publicity surrounding the deaths of the girls.

However, in February, Justice Miriam Gropper ordered that the trial be broadcast by video to a supervised courtroom at the Victoria Courthouse if technically feasible.
