Court hears how Ottawa teen, 16, killed over garbage bag full of pot


Ottawa teen, 16, killed over garbage bag full of pot: Crown

16-YEAR-OLD YAZDAN GHIASVAND GHIASI WAS KILLED IN DECEMBER 2010 AND HIS BODY DUMPED ON BOOTH STREET.


QMI AGENCY
OTTAWA - Yazdan Ghiasvand Ghiasi, 16, was shot through the heart over a 6 ½-pound garbage bag full of marijuana, the Crown argued Monday.Ghiasi was shot to death on Dec. 6, 2010.
Abdulhamid Wehbe, 22, has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter. His trial began Monday.
Prosecutors don't believe Wehbe was the shooter, but they say he and another man came to a Booth St. home with no intention of paying for the pot.
"This was a robbery," Mark Holmes said. "The intention was to steal the drugs and certainly not pay the $15,000 that had been negotiated as the purchase price."
The alleged robbery is why Wehbe is charged with manslaughter.
It was Ghiasi who'd fixed up the drug deal, his friend Don Dao testified. Dao had the connections to scrounge up garbage bags of marijuana on short notice - he admitted to dealing in volume about once a week.
He said he made about $100 per pound.
Ghiasi's intended client was a stranger whom he knew only as "Paul," Dao said.
Paul wanted 4 lbs., but then requested another 2 ½ lbs., the court heard.
The trial continues Monday afternoon.
