Man charged with second-degree murder gets new court date

The lawyer for a man charged with second-degree murder just got more disclosure from police.

A lawyer representing a man accused of second-degree murder said on Monday he had just received more disclosure from police.

Calgary lawyer Chris Archer is representing Daniel Boyd Sawyer, who was charged in connection with the death of a man in the parking lot of the Village Mall on Nov. 18, 2015.

Alan Beach, 31, died following a brawl outside a pub at the shopping area across from Parkland Mall. Sawyer turned himself in on Nov. 27.

Archer will appear in court again on Jan. 9, likely to set a trial date.

Two other men, Andrew Dwayne Werth and Bill Georgopoulos, are also facing charges in connection with Beach’s death. They are each facing charges of manslaughter and accessory to murder.

A preliminary hearing is to be held for the two men next June. Preliminary hearings can be used to test the strength of all or part of a Crown’s case before proceeding to a higher court.
