Alleged “Killer Colonel” Russell Williams Retains Top Defense Lawyer – Finally relieved of Command as he Appears at First Court Hearing – Belleville Ontario – February 19, 2010

Michael Edelson is no stranger to court rooms defending alleged murderers, and has been retained by Colonel Russell Williams who appeared in a Belleville Ontario court yesterday.

Colonel Williams was only relieved of his command yesterday and will still receive his salary unless convicted .  If found guilty Colonel Williams would have to reimburse his salary as per military regulations.

Mary Elizabeth Harriman, Colonel Williams wife was escorted by police back into their Westboro home as their investigation there had finished.  She has been described as being in shock from the events.
