Proceedings have been set over to mid-July against a Cochrane man accused in a deadly vehicle collision on Hwy 2 that claimed four foreign workers.

Tyler James Stevens, 29, is accused of drunk driving causing death and drunk driving causing bodily harm in relation to a head-on crash involving two SUVS in the southbound lanes near Innisfail at about 11:15 p.m. on March 4.

Police allege that four people in the southbound vehicle were killed and a fifth suffered severe injuries after it collided with another SUV that was heading north in the southbound lanes.

All five victims were temporary foreign workers, employed at an Edmonton hotel.

Stevens was to enter a plea in Red Deer provincial court on Monday. However, another lawyer acting as agent for his defence counsel asked that the plea be reserved to a future date.

Stevens is to return to court on July 16.
