A man looks at all that remains of Slack's after a fire destroyed the hotel last Feb.
The trial date for the man accused of beating to death another man outside Slack Alice's Show Pub has been set for June. 17, 2013 in Penticton.
The jury trial for Michael Beauchamp is expected to last six weeks. A pre-trial conference date was also set for April 8.
Beauchamp is charged with second degree murder in the death of Terrence Dale Wooley, who was found unconscious outside Slack's just after midnight on April 25, 2009.
After being escorted outside the back door by staff, following an incident at the bar, Wooley was found suffering from severe head injuries.
He was taken to hospital and remained in a coma until his death on May 25, 2009, at Moog and Friends Hospice House in Penticton.
