SAINT JOHN, N.B. – We could find out later today if information contained in police search warrants in the Richard Oland murder investigation will be made public or remained sealed for another six months.

Provincial Court Chief Judge R. Leslie Jackson will hear new evidence today, as Constable Stephen Davidson. an investigating officer on the case, will testify behind closed doors as to why the documents should remain sealed.

Late last month, Crown lawyers made their case as to why the documents should remain sealed but Jackson decided he would not grant an extension without hearing new evidence.

The lawyers for two local media outlets are calling for the information to be released.

The well known Saint John businessman was found dead in his uptown office on last year.

Police have said very little about their investigation.
