Dave Hansen, previously engaged to his victim's sister, will marry in a jailhouse ceremony at the maximum-security Saskatchewan Penitentiary in Prince Albert. The 30-year-old Hansen, a former nightclub bouncer nicknamed "Hitman," was convicted of second-degree murder March 16, 1988. His 83-year-old grandmother Alma confirmed the wedding and said she will be attending, but refused to say more on the advice of Hansen's lawyer. A friend of Hansen's, who asked not to be named, said the wedding is this weekend. "Dave took a fancy to the woman after he went to the prison and used to help her do the mass," she said. Hansen's planned nuptials drew the wrath of his former fiancee Julie Kuly whose sister Marcia Charette was killed by the man. Kuly said she suspects Hansen has motives other than love. "He has a twisted, demented mind to do what he has done and he'll do anything to get out," Kuly said. "I just hope nothing happens to her or her family once he gets out." Charette, a 24-year-old pediatric nurse at Edmonton's Royal Alexandra Hospital, was reported missing by her husband March 24, 1987. Her strangled body was found a day later stuffed in the trunk of her car. Hansen helped in the search and attended the funeral in nearby Vegre-ville, Alta. He was arrested March 31. Court later heard that Hansen and Charette had driven to a cabin west of Edmonton and had sex on March 24. The couple got into an argument, and Hansen said he strangled the petite woman after he "lost it." A police video entered during the trial showed Hansen confessing the killing to Kuly. A spokesman for the Saskatchewan Penetentiary said if there is a wedding, it will be the second this year in the prison chapel. But prison officials would not confirm the wedding because under the Privacy Act, they are not even allowed to reveal what jail a prisoner is in. Knot tied at last WELLINGTON (AFP) - A Canadian woman has married New Zealand's defence minister 45 years after they first became engaged, a spokesman for his office said Thursday.

Albert Victor Larimore, 71, of Livermore, Calif., pleaded guilty to smuggling a .22-calibre rifle, two .22-calibre handguns, a .38-calibre revolver and a tube of mace. He was arrested by Canada Customs at Sidney after arriving aboard a Washington state ferry on Wednesday. He initially denied having any weapons and even after some were found, denied there were others, said Crown counsel Kelly Woods. She asked for a fine above the minimum $200 because of the number of weapons seized, the fact they were loaded, and because Larimore denied at least three times having weapons. Meanwhile, two California men will appear in provincial court today on gun charges after Canada Customs officials nabbed them as they left the Coho early Thursday. Customs Supt. Tony Wingert said the two men each travelling with his family will be charged with smuggling weapons across the border. rill 'if J 'if! M hi GIANT ANTIQUE AUCTION SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11 P.M.
