Man accused in 2019 Red Deer murder will stay behind bars
A man accused of second-degree murder has consented to remaining in custody after being arrested earlier this month while on bail.
A bail review hearing for Quentin Strawberry, 39, set for Wednesday did not go ahead after he agreed to remain behind bars.
Red Deer RCMP said that on Nov. 8, they responded to a complaint that a man with outstanding warrants was allegedly threatening other people in a Riverside Meadows residence.
Police arrived and took Strawberry into custody without incident.
Strawberry faces 13 charges, including several gun-related charges, uttering threats and failing to appear in court.
A preliminary hearing on those charges has been set for April 14.
The accused, who was released on bail previously, remains in custody and is due in court on the latest charges on April 4, 2021.
He is scheduled to go on trial on March 8, 2021, for charges of second-degree murder in connection with the death of Joseph Junior Alfred Gallant, 45, in Grandview in March 2019.
He is facing a charge of assault causing bodily harm for an alleged attack on a woman at the scene.
