Allan Schoenborn day pass decision will not be appealed

Allan Schoenborn will be granted day passes to the community, after the province announced Friday that it will not appeal a decision made by the B.C. Review Board.

Schoenborn has been held in the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Port Coquitlam, B.C., since being found not criminally responsible for killing his three children in April 2008.

The family of Darcie Clarke, who is the children's mother and Schoenborn's estranged wife, released a statement Friday, saying she was disappointed with the province's decision.
