Murder suspect aggressive, obnoxious before fatal Stampeders shooting: trial

By The Canadian Press on December 5, 2018.

CALGARY – A woman who was at a bar the night a Calgary Stampeders player was killed two years ago says the man accused in the murder was aggressive and obnoxious before the fatal shooting.

Nelson Lugela, who is 21, is on trial for second-degree murder.

Hilary Jeavons told court Lugela was one of the instigators in an altercation with a group of Stampeders at Marquee Beer Market on Sept. 25, 2016.

She says Lugela approached the players at least twice, was aggressive and bumped into her numerous times during the evening without apologizing.

Jeavons says she was outside the bar when she heard two gunshots before heading home.

Hicks was shot twice after the bar closed and died a short time later.
