Calgary man charged in triple murder appears in court

(Sandra Prusina - 660 NEWS)

An Alberta judge has issued a no-contact order for a Calgary man charged with second-degree murder in the deaths of his girlfriend, mother and stepfather.

Dustin Duthie made a brief court appearance via closed-circuit TV as the Crown requested the order prohibiting him from contacting five individuals, including members of both families.

Court also heard that Legal Aid has not yet appointed a lawyer for Duthie, so the matter was adjourned until Sept. 12.

The bodies were all discovered July 31, but investigators believe Duthie’s girlfriend, Taylor Toller, died around July 26 in her condo.

His mother, Shawn Boshuck, and his stepfather, Alan Pennylegion, were found in their home and court documents allege they were killed July 31.

Duthie has already been found fit to stand trial after undergoing an examination by a forensic psychiatrist.

Police are asking anyone who had contact with Duthie between July 26 and July 31 to speak to investigators.
