Prospective jurors in Peter Khill trial questioned about potential racial bias

Prospective jurors for the Hamilton trial of Peter Khill, charged with second-degree murder for the death of a First Nations man, were screened by lawyers for possible racial bias on Monday.

The potential jurors were asked whether the fact that the accused Peter Khill was white and the deceased victim Jon Styres was Indigenous would keep them from considering evidence without bias.
