The trial for a Lacombe man accused in the 2010 shooting of a hunting partner is still almost a year away.

Philip Moore, 55, of Bentley died of a gunshot to his abdomen while hunting with three others in a wooded area about 13 km west of Bentley. The hunters had been out late in the afternoon of Nov. 29, 2010, the second to last day of the fall hunting season.

Herbert Stanley Meister, now 61, was charged with criminal negligence using a firearm.

In a hearing held in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Monday, it was determined that Meister would stand trial by judge alone. His trial is scheduled for Sept. 2 to 9, 2014.
