Gibsons man accused of killing mother to choose between judge or jury trial

Kevin Christopher Webster is accused of second-degree murder in the December 2020 death of his mother in her Gibsons home.
Kevin Christopher Webster's next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 8.

A Gibsons man charged with second-degree murder in his mother’s death will soon decide if his case will be heard by a judge or a judge and jury in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver.

On Dec. 27, RCMP officers discovered the body of Kevin Christopher Webster’s mother, Moirin Gladys Webster, in her home on Sargent Road. Injuries were “consistent with homicide,” according to an Integrated Homicide Investigation Team statement.

Kevin, 32, was arrested at the scene, police said.

Moirin was well known in the Gibsons churchgoing community. She had been a congregant with Christ the King Church, where she had taught Sunday school, ran children’s programming and attended prayer groups.

On Nov. 24, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Karen Douglas heard the case could take up to seven days — possibly in May — to hear.

Kevin’s next court appearance is Dec. 8. He remains in custody.
