Lingering questions about what happened to Aimee Parkes in the hours leading to her death could be answered this time next year.

Her then-partner, Ryan James Quigley, 35, is scheduled for a four week trial on the charge of second degree murder, starting April 11, 2016.

Quigley was taken into police custody three days after Parkes’s body was found in the home they shared at Hiawatha Mobile Home Park April 1, 2014.  He had been the subject of a police hunt, after Parkes’s body had been found by police who were called to her residence.

Parkes, who was a branch assistant at a Kelowna bank, hadn’t shown up to work and concerned co-workers alerted the authorities, who eventually made the discovery.

According to the online footprint left of the couple’s time together, they had become engaged in April 2013 and set to be married July of 2014.
