A 17-year-old suspect remains in custody for allegedly killing a 26-year-old Trail man who lived nearby.
“This matter was not heard in Rossland court on Thursday and has been held over until May 31,” Cpl. Dave Johnson said via email. “This is allowing for further disclosure from police to Crown counsel and defense counsel.”
Trail RCMP are investigating the homicide of the victim who suffered fatal injuries before he was brought to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on May 15.
Under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, the victim’s name is being withheld, as it could identify the youth suspect.
Police are not releasing information on what exactly occurred during the altercation at the Trail home until the full story is shared in court.
