WINNIPEG - Manitoba Justice says the Crown will not appeal the acquittal of a man who was accused of killing 15-year-old Tina Fontaine.
The Crown says in a statement that only errors in law can be appealed, and it has decided there weren't any.
A jury found Raymond Cormier not guilty last month of second-degree murder in Tina's death.
Her body was found in Winnipeg's Red River in August 2014.
The Crown says it has advised Tina's family of the decision.
