Man charged in deadly crash ordered to stand trial

A Red Deer man facing criminal charges in connection with a fatal collision in Red Deer has been ordered to stand trial.

A Red Deer man facing criminal charges in connection with a fatal collision in Red Deer has been ordered to stand trial.

Brent Robert Cameron, 25, is charged with leaving the scene of a fatal collision and public mischief in connection with the death of a man whose body was found on Taylor Bridge on Oct. 6, 2012.

Paul Gabriel Bertin, 18, had recently moved to Red Deer from Botha.

Cameron was scheduled for a preliminary hearing before Judge David Plosz in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday.

Preliminary hearings may be held to test the strength of the Crown’s case before proceeding to trial.

The hearing was waived after a brief discussion outside the courtroom between Crown prosecutor Wayne Silliker and a new witness who had been brought forward just before.

Previously released on $2,000 cash bail, Cameron is due back in the Court of Queen’s Bench on Dec. 2 to set a date for his trial.
