SAINT-JEROME, Que. — The Crown could wind up its case this week in the trial of former Quebec doctor Guy Turcotte, who is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the slayings of his two young children.

Turcotte has pleaded not guilty to the charges but has admitted to causing the deaths of Olivier and Anne-Sophie in February 2009.

At the beginning of the trial, the prosecution said it intended to call 30 witnesses and No. 25 took the stand today.

The defence has not outlined its intentions yet or said if it will call Turcotte to the stand.

Quebec Superior Court Justice Andre Vincent has set aside three months for the jury trial.
