Nadler’s preliminary hearing will take place next year between May 1 and May 5 and between May 8 and May 12 after a confirmation hearing on April 24.
Court documents allege Poidinger was killed on March 25, 2021, and the three others “on or about” that date. The documents say Briere, Lalande and Lungulescu also died in Hawkesbury, Ont.
Nadler’s lawyers maintain their client’s innocence and say his patients died from COVID-19.
