Robert William Pickton 52, has been in custody since his arrest Feb. 22, 2 1/2 weeks after the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Vancouver police raided his dilapidated pig farm in the Vancouver, British Columbia, suburb of Port Coquitlam.

Pickton was charged in the killings of Jacqueline McDonnell, Diane Rock and Heather Bottomley. He had already been charged in connection with the deaths of Sereena Abotsway and Mona Wilson.
