The man accused of killing a Calgary mother and then dumping her body in a Red Deer recycling bin will have to wait two more months to get a trial date.
It has been nearly two years since the body of Talia Meguinis, 27 was found in a recycling bin that was being unloaded at a facility in Red Deer’s Riverside industrial park.
The body was found on Feb. 22, 2012.
Nathan Desharnais, 25, is awaiting a trial date for numerous charges in relation to the incident, including second-degree murder and interfering with human remains.
He pleaded not guilty and has chosen to be tried by judge and jury in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench. After a preliminary hearing for Desharnais ended on Dec. 20, 2013, he was ordered to stand trial.
He will next appear in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on March 3 for his arraignment in the hopes of setting a trial date.
