Canada to try pig farmer on six of 26 counts of murder

Pig farmer Robert Pickton will face just six of 26 accusations that he murdered prostitutes and drug addicts.

Supreme Court of British Columbia justice James Williams said a trial on 26 murder charges would be too long and too much for jurors, and he cited differences between six of the cases and the other 20 in ordering separate trials.
