Preliminary hearing begins in shooting of young Indigenous man

A week-long court hearing begins today in North Battleford, Saskatchewan to determine whether a farmer accused of shooting a young Indigenous man should stand trial.

The preliminary hearing will weigh the evidence the Crown has gathered in the case of Gerald Stanley, who is charged with second-degree murder in last summer’s shooting of Colten Boushie. A witness has previously said gunfire rang out when Boushie and some companions drove onto a farm near Biggar seeking help for a flat tire.

None of the information has been tested in court and details of the hearing are under a publication ban. Stanley has pleaded not guilty and is out on bail.
