The spouse and two daughters of Jon Styres are suing the man who shot and killed him for damages totalling more than $2 million, alleging Peter Khill shot the First Nations man twice as he "fled."
Court documents filed on Jan. 31, 2018 lay out the suit filed by Hamilton's Hooper Law Offices on behalf of Lindsay Hill and her daughters, age two and four.
Khill, a former Canadian Forces reservist, admitted he shot and killed Styres in Feb. 2016. He was found not-guilty of second-degree murder Wednesday after a two-week trial in Hamilton Superior Court.
