Accused student killer’s trial delayed again
SASKATOON – The judicial proceedings for a man accused of killing a Saskatoon university student have been delayed again.
Douglas Hales, who is 34, was arrested in 2008 in the death of Daleen Bosse, but the case has been unable to go to trial because Hales has had several lawyers.
Hales is charged with first-degree murder and offering an indignity to human remains by setting fire to a body.
He’s currently negotiating fees with a lawyer and was set to have it resolved in court Friday, but it’s been put off until June 3.
Bosse was a 25-year-old University of Saskatchewan student when she was last seen at a Saskatoon nightclub in 2004.
Her remains were found northeast of Martensville in 2008.
The case is expected to go to trial sometime next year.
