Jackie McKean, who lives in Ontario with her younger 10-year-old son, will be testifying at the five-day inquiry scheduled to begin Monday.

It will review the murder-suicide of 11-year-old Jeremy Bostick and his 39-year-old father Jeffrey, who were found barricaded in a sealed bedroom in an Edmonton home with a cylinder of carbon monoxide gas Sept. 27, 2009, according to Alberta Justice.
