KAWARTHA LAKES- Jury selection starts today in the trial of Ross Dion of Little Britain.
On May 29th, 2018 officers from the City of Kawartha Lakes OPP responded to a fire on Aino Beach Road near Little Britain, where fire crews had found a deceased woman at the residence. She was later identified as 35-year-old, Heeley Rae Balanga.

The trial had been expected to begin in a Lindsay courtroom in November 2020 but was delayed due to the pandemic.
