Cache Creek man charged with murder released on bail again

April 05, 2019 - 1:20 PM

KAMLOOPS — A Cache Creek man charged with second degree murder has been granted bail for the second time by a Kamloops Supreme Court Judge.

Corey Richard Harkness, 31, was arrested by RCMP a few days after a deadly shooting at a Cache Creek residence in the 1000-block of Collins Road on January 14. Harkness was charged with one count of second-degree murder and was held in custody until Feb. 4, where he was released on a $100,000 cash bail with a $10,000 deposit.

On Feb. 18, Harkness was arrested for breaching his bail condition and brought back into custody.

Defence and Crown lawyers met today, April 5, in Kamloops Supreme Court to submit a joint release plan for the accused. His new bail conditions will require him to live at a supportive housing facility aimed at helping people involved with crime in Kelowna.

There he must abide by several house rules including following a curfew as well.

On Jan. 14, police responded to a 911 call at a Cache Creek home around 7 p.m. where an "interaction" took place between two people who knew each other. When they arrived, officers found a deceased man and arrested Harkness in connection to the man's death.

Details of the offence cannot be published due to a court-ordered publication ban.
