Trial dates will be addressed in two more weeks for a Red Deer man who pleaded not guilty earlier on to a string of violent offences starting with reports of an armed robbery outside a Parke Avenue apartment building in Red Deer.

David James Kertesz, 27, remains in custody at Red Deer Remand Centre, awaiting trial on charges including kidnapping, forcible confinement, extortion, and armed robbery affecting three different alleged victims. Kertesz was among the people arrested after a standoff with city RCMP at a house on Halman Crescent on May 14.

The charges against him have been replaced with a new set of charges, in which the alleged weapon has been altered to an imitation firearm.

Kertesz was scheduled for a bail hearing today. However, that hearing has been adjourned to Friday, Aug. 9, when he is to be arraigned in Court of Queen’s Bench for trial by judge alone.

Also charged in connection with the May 14 incident is Garnet Colby Mcinnes, 22, who is scheduled for a bail hearing today.
