A Brighton man who was charged with first degree murder in the death of his estranged wife, is a free man.
Monday morning in Windsor court, the Crown told the judge that there was not enough evidence to try Scott Quick in the death of 40 year old Nancy Quick, who was struck by a hit and run driver near Windsor in 2006.
She died of her injuries five days later in a Detroit hospital.
In December, the judge announced there was enough evidence against Quick to stand trial, but the Crown’s office decided against it Monday.
According to the CBC, Assistant Crown attorney Brian Manarin said it was “physically impossible” for Quick to have stolen the vehicle that killed his ex-wife.
The Brighton man had been in jail since March of 2015 and described his time in jail as hell.
