Bail was denied Wednesday for a man charged with an attempted murder in Red Deer in 2007.

Salah Reshid Hussain, 26, of Brooks returns to Red Deer provincial court on Monday to hopefully have a date set for a preliminary hearing.

Hussain was denied bail in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench by Justice Monica Bast.

Earlier this week, Hussain, through his lawyer Arnold Piragoff, elected to be tried by a judge alone.

Details of the hearing can’t be published following a court order.

Hussain was charged in the late fall with a May 2007 shooting incident at a north Red Deer apartment complex.

A Canada-wide arrest warrant was issued for him after he was charged. He was arrested in Calgary and transported to Red Deer in October.

A 24-year-old woman suffered minor injuries in the incident in what RCMP said was sparked by an alleged drug debt.

A preliminary hearing is held to determine if there’s enough evidence to warrant the accused stand trial in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench.
