The mental state of an admitted serial killer is expected to take center stage in a Winnipeg murder trial after a judge agreed to hear testimony from a forensic psychiatrist and YouTuber.

Skibicki’s lawyers admit he killed the women, but argue he should not be found criminally responsible because of mental illness.
