KAMLOOPS - A man accused of murdering his uncle will return to court this spring for his trial to continue after it was adjourned indefinitely last summer.

Shane Takeshi Gyoba is charged with second degree murder after his uncle Ed Gyoba died from blunt force trauma in the backyard of the home they shared in Ashcroft.

The trial began in August but stopped within the first week after Gyoba’s lawyer requested a psychiatric assessment. The results will be revealed once the trial resumes the week of March 21.
