A former Saskatchewan RCMP officer has been ordered to stand trial in the killing of a 26-year-old man.
After a two-day preliminary hearing this week, a judge determined there’s enough evidence to move the case forward.
Prosecutor William Burge says the accused is to be tried by a judge and jury, with a trial date yet to be set.
Braden Herman’s body was found on May 11, 2021, in an isolated area of Little Red River Park on the outskirts of Prince Albert.
Herman, who was a 32-year member of the RCMP when he was arrested, has since resigned and pleaded not guilty to the charge.
