A judge and jury trial has been selected for a man charged with second-degree murder in the April 2008 death of a Red Deer man.
Larry Allen Scott, 53, of Red Deer pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and being an accessory after the fact to murder in the death of Sheldon Mark Hiller, 46.
Nine days has been set aside for the trial. A date can’t be set until after the lawyers conduct a pre-trial conference with a Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench justice in the next few weeks. A final date will be set on Nov. 2. The trial isn’t expected until next spring.
Scott remains in custody where he has been since his arrest on May 1, 2008.
The body of Hiller, 46, was found on April 17, 2008, in a ditch along Hwy 54, about three km west of Raven. A passerby saw human remains and contacted RCMP. He had been stabbed numerous times in the chest and torso.
