Hunting fatality case may be resolved without trial

The case against a Lacombe man charged with killing his hunting companion is expected to be resolved without a trial.

Herbert Stanley Meister appeared briefly in Red Deer provincial court on Monday, at what was supposed to be the start of his three-week trial.

But after meeting with the Crown prosecutor, Meister’s lawyer, Will Willms, told Judge Kirk Sisson that a different resolution to the case is expected.

Meister will return to court on Feb. 4 to set a date for a plea and sentence.

He was charged with criminal negligence causing death while using a firearm in connection to an incident on Nov. 29, 2010, that resulted in the death of another Central Alberta man.
