Trial date to deal with Brittney Irving murder still not set

Joelon David Atish Verma will wait another few weeks to find out when his murder and robbery trial starts.

Verma, who appeared in Kelowna court via video-link, was set to find out his trial date for the second time in a matter of weeks, when he learned his lawyer wanted to defer the matter until April 2.

"Sounds good," he said, when a stand-in lawyer conveyed the news.

Verma has been in custody since his arrest for the 2010 killing of Brittney Irving.

Irving went missing April 2010 after an alleged marijuana deal went awry.

Her Ford Explorer was found on Philpott Road shortly after family reported her missing, and her body followed not long after that.
