Murder preliminary hearing underway

A preliminary hearing looking into the circumstances surrounding Kelowna’s first murder of 2010 got underway in a Kelowna courtroom on Tuesday morning.

George Young is accused of second degree murder in the death of 30-year-old Joel Reimer on Jan. 1, 2010.

His body was found beneath a van near Park Avenue and Pandosy Street that day and Young was arrested sometime later.

The preliminary hearing, which is being held before Judge Brad Chapman to determine if there is enough evidence to proceed to trial, is scheduled to run until the latter part of next week.

Evidence presented at the hearing is subject to a publication ban and cannot be printed.
