Surrey woman’s murder trial resumes in April

NEW WESTMINSTER – The trial of a Surrey woman accused of murdering her own mother is scheduled to resume in April.


Gloria Zerbinos, 30, is being tried for second-degree murder in the Nov. 8, 2012 death of her 43-year-old mother Panagiota "Yota" Zerbinos.


This week, the Crown and defence argued, in a voir dire hearing – which is essentially a trial within a trial – whether certain evidence should be admitted into the trial proper. Verhoeven has reserved his decision on that matter to March 31.
