A 53-year-old Muskoday man will go to trial for charges related to the July 2014 death of an 11-year-old boy and injury of another boy.
Gordon Morris Crain’s two-week trial by judge alone is set to begin in mid-April of next year.
It relates to a charges, including impaired driving causing death, stemming from the death of a boy who was out bicycling near the Muskoday bridge on Highway 3 that summer. Another boy was allegedly injured as well.
The fatally injured boy was taken to the Victoria Hospital in Prince Albert before his death.
The names of those boys are protected by a publication ban that was put in place at Crain’s bail hearing and reinstated at his preliminary hearing.
Crain’s trial will cover six charges: impaired driving causing death and causing bodily harm; dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and causing bodily harm; and criminal negligence causing death and causing bodily harm.
Crain has been out on bail since August 2014, and has been through eight pre-trial dates at Prince Albert Court of Queen’s Bench.
His trial will also take place at the Court of Queen’s Bench.
