Michael Rafferty Found Guilty

Michael Rafferty has been found guilty of all counts in the abduction, rape and killing of eight-year-old Victoria Stafford.  A jury has convicted Rafferty of first-degree murder, sexual assault causing bodily harm and kidnapping in the 2009 death. Tori's father Rodney Stafford says he felt a lot of pent up emotion in the courtroom in London, Ontario.

Judge Thomas Heeney commended the jury for taking its time and reaching a verdict that was "just and amply supported by the evidence.''
