Molly Matters group delivers thousands of signatures to Windsor MP offices
On a somber anniversary, the family of a murdered pregnant woman is pushing for change to the criminal code for unborn children.
Cassandra Kaake, 31, was seven months pregnant when she was killed in her home in the early morning hours of Dec. 11, 2014. Her unborn baby was going to be named Molly.
As part of the anniversary of their deaths, Cassandra Kaake’s mother Nancy Kaake and the father of the unborn baby are delivering over 14,000 signatures on a petition to the offices of three local MPs.
The campaign, called Molly Matters, began after her family discovered Canadian law does not recognize Molly as a second victim.
Matthew Brush, 27, of LaSalle, is charged with one count of first degree murder.
