Murder trial dates set for fall

Nineteen days have been set aside to try accused of killing Joel Reimer.

Nineteen days have been set aside for a jury to hear the case against the man accused of killing Joel Reimer on New Year’s Day, 2010.

George Young’s trial is scheduled to begin on Oct. 11, the court heard Monday as the trial dates were confirmed before a B.C. Supreme Court justice.

Young was charged with second-degree murder and failing to stop at an accident causing death after the body of Reimer was found beneath a van near Park Avenue and Pandosy Street on Jan. 1, 2010.

Young was ordered to stand trial in January after an eight-day preliminary hearing was held in Kelowna.

Young’s case is next scheduled to be in court March 30 for a pretrial conference.
