A new trial date has been set for one of nine people arrested in connection with a cocaine investigation in Red Deer in November 2011.

Peter Ker Ruach, 36, was to have been tried in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench by judge alone in late January on charges connecting him with cocaine trafficking.

However, the trial did not proceed after Ruach fired his lawyer.

Red Deer defence counsel Walter Kubanek will represent him at the trial, scheduled for Nov. 5.
