KAMLOOPS — A Kamloops man who was charged in connection to a fatal beating outside a North Shore nightclub in December 2016 has been found not guilty by a Supreme Court jury.

James David Bond, 29, was acquitted of manslaughter yesterday, March 13, in B.C. Supreme Court, according to court documents.

On December 30, 2016, police were called to the 400 block of Tranquille Road just before 3 a.m., after a 42-year-old man was found unconscious.

When first responders arrived they failed to revive him. RCMP identified the victim as Sean Dunn. 

The death was the result of an argument between Dunn and Bond, police said at the time.

Police had said the two men were not known to each other and had only just met that night.
