Man accused in 2019 Grandview homicide going to trial

Quentin Strawberry charged with second-degree murder

A man accused of killing a Grandview resident will be going to trial.

Quentin Strawberry, 38, was ordered to stand trial on charges of second-degree murder and assault after a preliminary hearing wrapped up Friday.

A trial date has not been set.

RCMP were called to a Grandview home around midnight on March 29, 2019. Neighbours phoned 9-1-1 after Gallant, who had been stabbed, called for help. The father of two died later in hospital.

Gallant had come to Red Deer for work from Prince Edward Island less than four months before his death.

Jennifer Lee Caswell, 38, is also charged with second-degree murder and assault causing bodily harm in connection with Gallant’s death. Her case returns to court Thursday.

Crown prosecutors earlier decided to deal with the cases against Strawberry and Caswell separately.

Strawberry will also be going to trial on charges of attempted murder, obstructing a police officer and six counts of breaching his release conditions. A trial date has not been set.

He was arrested last December after police were called to a downtown Red Deer apartment building.

When officers arrived, they found a man suffering from a head wound after allegedly being attacked with a machete.
