 A second man has pleaded guilty in connection with the abduction and slaying of a man in North Vancouver more than a year ago.
On Friday, Casey James Hiscoe made a brief appearance in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver and pleaded guilty to conspiracy to unlawfully confine and to accessory after the fact to murder.The pleas were entered in connection tothe slaying of Peng Sun, 22, whose body was found in a quiet North Vancouver street in September 2015.
Details of Hiscoe’s involvement in the case are expected to be outlined during his sentencing hearing. The case has been put over to Feb. 22 to set a date for the sentencing.
Hiscoe’s pleas came just two days after Tian Yi Eddie Zhang, Hiscoe’s co-accused, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter and unlawful confinement of Sun, a Chinese man, and to the extortion of Cang Sun and Hau Li, the victim’s parents. Zhang’s sentencing hearing is expected Feb. 21.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was called to the scene after Sun’s body was found in the 900-block of Wellington Drive.
Three vehicles, a black BMW SUV, a white Bentley and a Chevrolet Malibu, were takenfrom the crime scene on flatbed trucks. Only the Bentley had a tarp placed over it, prompting residents to suspect that the victim was inside that vehicle.
Two other men were also arrested and charged in the case but have had their charges stayed.
