Man accused in deaths of Calgary mother, daughter to appear in court

CityNews | posted Wednesday, Jul 20th, 2016

The man accused of killing a Calgary woman and her five-year-old daughter is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

Edward Delten Downey had not retained a lawyer when he was charged with two counts of first-degree murder last Thursday; none of the charges has been proven in court.

It’s not clear how Downey knew Sara Baillie, a 34-year-old who worked at the Calgary airport Chili’s restaurant, or her daughter, Taliyah Marsman.

Baillie was found dead in her home on July 11 and an Amber Alert was issued for the little girl.

Police found Taliyah’s body three days later in a rural area just east of Calgary.

A memorial service is to be held for the pair on Thursday.
