HALIFAX – A 37-year-old man will stand trial next spring for second-degree murder in the disappearance of a Halifax prostitute.
Steven Elliot Laffin, of Dartmouth, is charged with killing Nadine Taylor, 29, who went missing in the summer of 2010.
Laffin appeared in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Halifax recently to finalize dates for a three-week jury trial.
Justice Kevin Coady scheduled the trial to get underway April 2.
Taylor hasn’t been seen since she left her Fairview apartment on the night of July 28, 2010, to make a phone call.
Taylor’s body has never been found, but police charged Laffin with her murder in October 2010.
