Langley serial killer Davey Mato Butorac will go to trial for the 2006 slaying of Aldergrove’s Margaret Redford sometime in the late fall or early spring of 2013.

Jury selection for his trial is slated for Jan. 29 to Feb. 4, 2013 in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. He was last in court on this matter on March 29.

Butorac is already serving a life sentence for killing two sex trade workers in the spring and summer of 2007. DNA found on his shoe and in his car linked him to those murders, which took place in Langley City and Abbotsford.

Redford’s family made several pleas for the killer to come forward after her case went cold. It was after Butorac was arrested for the sex trade workers’ murders that he was first linked to Redford’s death. Redford’s body was found floating in the Bertrand Creek, which is blocks from where Butorac lived with his father.
