Tyler Campbell and Amie Rogers facing second-degree murder charges

A preliminary hearing has been set for November for a man and woman charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of a Ponoka man.

Amie Rogers, 21, and Tyler John Campbell, 27, have each been charged with second-degree murder, robbery with a firearm and conspiring to commit an offence.

Campbell has also been charged with breaching court conditions.

A five-day preliminary hearing is set to begin Nov. 16.

Preliminary hearings are held to determine if there is enough evidence to take a case to trial. Evidence presented at a preliminary hearing is covered under a publication ban.

Lacombe police were called to the local hospital at around 2 a.m. last Dec. 15 after Jeffery Kraft, 20, was dropped off with a gunshot wound.

Kraft, who was from Ponoka, later died from his injuries.
