VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – There will be no new trial for a man convicted of killing 21-year-old Cindy Agnus Burk 22 years ago.

Burk’s body was found dumped on a side road between Ft. St. John and Dawson Creek. She died from loss of blood caused by a wound to her throat.

Paul Felker was questioned in the case 14 years later, but police never arrested him. They kept him in mind as a suspect though, and in 2006 undercover officers posing as gangsters that were recruiting Felker to join their gang got him to confess in a classic Mr. Big sting operation.

Using that evidence, a jury found Felker guilty of second-degree murder. He appealed, arguing the trial judge didn’t give the jury proper instructions.

That appeal is being dismissed by BC’s highest court.
