Jason Yeo

The defence wrapped up its case this morning in the trial of a Charlottetown man charged for his alleged role in a 2012 home invasion in Emyvale.

Jason Norman Yeo was only in P.E.I. Supreme Court for part of the morning as his lawyer Mitch MacLeod closed the case by filing three documents and calling no witnesses.


Yeo is accused of playing a role in planning the robbery of convicted drug dealer Dean Fairhurst in May 2012.

During the trial several witnesses testified Yeo was involved.

Those witnesses included Chase Roper who testified Yeo suggested robbing Fairhurst as a way to repay $15,000.

During this morning’s proceedings the three documents MacLeod filed were all related to Roper.

MacLeod told the court he was relying on the defence exhibits and cross-examinations for his case.

Justice Ben Taylor gave the lawyers for both sides until Jan. 17 to provide written submissions.

Yeo will be back in court March 3 to hear Taylor’s verdict.
