A Three Hills man charged in connection with a stabbing on Sylvan Lake has asked for a jury trial in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench.
Casey Kristopher Staple, 27, was charged with aggravated assault and three counts of breaching release conditions.
Sylvan Lake RCMP were called on Jan. 26 to complaints that someone had been stabbed during a fight inside a temporary hut set up for ice fishing.
Defence counsel John MacNaughton has asked for a preliminary hearing to test the Crown’s case against his client before proceeding to trial.
The hearing is scheduled for the afternoon of Nov. 15 in Red Deer provincial court.
