A Kamloops-area man charged with murder in connection with a 2019 shooting in Cache Creek has been ordered to stand trial in B.C. Supreme Court.
Corey Harkness, 33, is facing one count of second-degree murder stemming from an incident inside a Cache Creek home that left a 33-year-old man dead.
Harkness was arrested days after Brock Ledoux was shot to death on Jan. 14, 2019. Ledoux had been released from custody a short time before the shooting.
Following a four-day preliminary inquiry this week in Kamloops provincial court, Harkness was ordered to stand trial. Preliminary inquiries are hearings at which prosecutors present a boiled-down version of their case to a provincial court judge, who then decides whether there is enough evidence for trial.
Evidence heard at the preliminary inquiry is protected by a court-ordered ban on publication.
Harkness, who is free on bail, is slated to make his first appearance in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops on Dec. 14. A trial date has not yet been set.
