Young murder suspect will stand trial

The man accused of killing Joel Reimer a year ago has been ordered to stand trial.

The decision was made Thursday as George Young’s eight-day preliminary hearing wrapped up.

Young is accused of committing second degree murder in the death of 30-year-old Reimer on New Year’s Day, 2010.

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

Evidence presented at the preliminary hearing before Judge Brad Chapman is subject to a publication ban.

Young’s case will now move to Supreme Court, where a trial date will later be set.
