Progress in court process for Kelowna man accused of killing wife and kids

Their bodies were discovered Dec. 2017

The man charged with killing his wife and two daughters days before Christmas 2017 appeared via video in a Kelowna courtroom Monday morning to schedule a pretrial conference.

The process was thwarted the first time around when Jacob Forman wanted to change his legal counsel.

Last month, his new lawyer Ray Dieno asked the court to put the case over four weeks as he reviews the disclosure in the case.

A pre-trial conference is required before setting longer trials and Dieno said the trial “wouldn’t be any less than four to six weeks.”

The pre-trial conference will be held Oct. 10
