Murder trial delayed
The trial of a Kamloops man accused of killing his father last year has been delayed a few days.
Joshua Steel’s second-degree murder trial was set to begin in B.C. Supreme Court on Monday, Nov. 5.
It is now expected to get underway on Wednesday, Nov. 7.
The 19-year-old was arrested after his father, 63-year-old Phil Steel, was found dead inside the family’s Westmount home on Sept. 12, 2011.
Josh Steel, who has no prior criminal record, was charged with second-degree murder a short time later.
The trial is expected to last three days.
