KAMLOOPS - The trial for a man and woman accused of gunning down a man in a Salmon Arm school yard won’t take place until next spring.
Names of both accused charged with first-degree murder cannot be revealed as they were both youths at the time of the alleged offence. Their names are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
22-year-old Tyler Myers’ body was found in a Salmon Arm elementary schoolyard in November 2008.
The case is currently in a four-week voir dire proceeding to determine what evidence will be admissible at trial.
The six-week trial is expected to begin spring of 2016.
