A resolution conference has been scheduled in the case of a man from Bedford, N.S., facing charges in connection with a fatal hit-and-run in Dartmouth last year.
Matthew Gerald Kennedy is facing charges of criminal negligence causing death and failure to stop at the scene of a fatal collision.
In an email to Global News, Joel Pink, Kennedy’s lawyer, says the case is heading to a resolution conference on April 17.
The date for the conference was scheduled in Nova Scotia Supreme Court Thursday.
Kennedy was charged after he allegedly fled the scene of a collision in Dartmouth on Feb. 22, 2019 that left 57-year-old Gary Rogers dead.
Kennedy has been out on conditions since Feb. 25, which include not driving a motor vehicle, remaining in Nova Scotia and staying at a residence in Bedford.
