Court proceedings have been delayed for a few more days against a Cochrane man accused of killing four people and injuring one in a collision on Hwy 2 near Innisfail.

Tyler James Stevens, 30, faces 19 charges after a collision late in the evening of March 4 during which a southbound SUV carrying four people was struck by another SUV travelling north in the southbound lanes.

Charges against Stevens include criminal negligence causing death, criminal negligence causing bodily harm, impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm and refusing to provide police with a sample of his breath.

Red Deer lawyer Will Willms, speaking on behalf of Stevens’s lawyer Ian Savage in Red Deer provincial court on Monday, said the accused man’s counsel needs more time to negotiate a plea agreement with the Crown.

Savage and his client are to return to court on Sept. 10 to enter a plea.
