VERNON —     Opponents of violence against women plan to rally and march this morning in Vernon, in advance of an expected court date for Curtis Sagmoen.

    The 36-year-old is charged with several counts related to alleged threats against a sex-trade worker in the North Okanagan.

    The remains of Vernon teenager Traci Genereaux were found during an investigation but charges have not been laid in connection with that discovery.

    In a separate case, a vigil will be held this evening in Kelowna to remember Clara Forman and her young daughters Karina and Yesenia, who were found dead in the family's Rutland home before Christmas. Jacob Forman is charged with three counts of second-degree murder and returns to court in Kelowna in the new year.
