CALGARY (660 NEWS) – A prosecutor in the trial of two people accused in a Calgary quadruple killing has told jurors the case is like a journey into the heart of darkness.

Brian Holtby has delivered the Crown’s closing arguments in the trial of Tewodros Kebede and Yu Chieh Liao.

The pair are accused of first-degree murder in the death of Hanock Afowerk, who the jurors were told was a petty criminal who made fake identification.

Holtby told the jury that Afowerk was kidnapped, tortured and killed for little more than monetary gain and perhaps an enjoyment in inflicting pain.


Three other people Cody Pfeiffer and sisters Tiffany Ear and Glynnis Fox were found dead in Afowerk’s car early on July 10, 2017, near a construction site.


Liao is charged with accessory after the fact in the deaths of all three, while Kebede is charged with being an accessory in Pfeiffer’s death.
