Ten days were booked this week in Red Deer Court of Queen’s for the trial beginning on Sept. 13, 2010, for Larry Allen Scott, 54, of Red Deer.

Scott, who will be tried by a judge and jury, is charged with second-degree murder and being an accessory after the fact to murder.

Scott has been in custody since his arrest in mid-April 2007 following the discovery of the body of Sheldon Mark Hiller, 46, of Red Deer.

Hiller was found dead on April 16, 2007, in the Raven area. his body was found in a ditch by a passerby.

He had been stabbed numerous times in the chest and torso.

Brent William Crouse, 45, of Calgary, is also charged in the murder and faces a murder and accessory charge. His preliminary hearing is set for Jan. 4.

A third accused — Charles Richard Beckett, 48, of Red Deer — was sentenced to two years in jail, satisfied by time served, after pleading guilty to accessory after the fact to murder last spring. Beckett was in jail for a year.

Court heard earlier that Beckett accompanied three other men, including the victim, for a ride from Red Deer to the Raven area on April 16, 2007.
