SASKATOON – A high-profile first-degree murder trial is set to resume Monday at Court of Queen’s Bench in Saskatoon.

Three weeks ago, the trial for Douglas Hales was brought to a halt when court ran out of time.

Hales is accused of killing 25-year-old Daleen Bosse, who went missing in May 2004.

Four weeks had been slated for the trial but the defence said it would require a block of three days based on the “nature of the evidence” it was about to present in order to proceed.
