OLIVER - A pair of brothers believed responsible for bombing a car in Oliver will undergo psychiatric assessment before returning to court on Nov. 20.

Stephan, 19, and Eric Daoust, 23, were before Penticton Provincial Court on Monday to learn they will be held in custody and assessed. The two face one count each of placing or throwing explosive to damage property.

Their arrest came after a two-month investigation into a car bombing on Aug. 11 in Oliver. RCMP said a homemade explosive device had exploded under a vehicle parked in an alleyway between Okanagan Street and Earle Crescent. A piece of shrapnel from the blast flew through and into a building.

Police also said the pair might have been targetting a particular person.
