A new trial date has yet to be set for the man accused of killing an Olds College student after an incident outside a bar in the late summer of 2010.
Jeffrey Kevin Leinen, 27, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison with no parole for 14 years in connection with an incident outside the Texas Mickey Bar in Olds during the early hours of Oct. 29, 2010.
Olds RCMP alleged at the time that college student Nicholas Baier, 18, was killed and another man was injured when a pickup truck was driven into a crowd of people who were standing outside the bar.
Leinen was charged with second-degree murder, aggravated assault and dangerous driving. He was convicted and sentenced in Calgary in December of 2011.
A new trial was ordered on Aug. 12, when the Alberta Court of Appeal overturned Leinen’s conviction and sentence.
Leinen remains in custody pending the outcome of his new trial, with dates and proceedings to be discussed in Calgary on March 14.
