Man accused in connection with Red Deer mother’s death to have trial in 2018

Lyndon Olsen charged with manslaughter with a firearm after a February incident in Red Deer.

A man charged with manslaughter with a firearm in connection with the death of a Red Deer mother-of-two will have a jury trial in September 2018.

Olsen was arrested last Feb. 6 in connection with the death of Randee Lynn Stewart, 25.

At about 6:15 a.m. on Feb. 1, Red Deer RCMP received a report of possible gunshots in the area of a townhouse complex near 54th Avenue and 43rd Street, followed shortly afterwards by a truck crashing on its way to Red Deer Regional Hospital on 42nd Street.

RCMP located Stewart in the truck near the hospital, where she was taken and later succumbed to her injuries.

Olsen was arrested the following week after a vehicle he was riding in got into a minor collision with a police vehicle.

The accused remains in custody.

In Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Monday a seven-day trial was scheduled for Sept. 17-25, 2018. Jury selection will take place on Sept. 17.
