Man charged with bank robbery to go to trial

A man accused of committing a pair of Okanagan bank robberies last year has been ordered to stand trial.

Trevor Allan Nilsson was told his case would go to trial after his preliminary hearing—which first got underway in December—wrapped up in a Kelowna courtroom on Friday.

Nilsson faces charges in connection with the Feb. 16, 2010, robbery at the Toronto Dominion Bank in Penticton and a robbery at the CIBC on Pandosy Street in Kelowna  a few weeks later.

Nilsson is scheduled to return to court on March 21 to set trial dates.
