Trial date set for bush party stabbing

The young man accused of stabbing to death a Penticton teen at a graduation bush party will stand trial starting Aug. 12.

The 10 day, judge and jury trial for Jamie Wolanski, 20, was set in a Penticton court room on Monday.

At his last court appearance, Wolanski and his new lawyer Clarke Burnett were told by Justice Alison Beames that they needed to act quickly to get a trial set, because there were only two 10 day blocks in supreme court between January and the end of 2013.

Wolanski is accused of stabbing 16-year-old Andrew McAdam at a party in the Carmi area in June of 2011.

He is next slated to appear in court on March 4 for a pretrial conference for charges of breach of recognizance and possession of a controlled substance.

Wolanski was out on $75,000 bail with several conditions attached, following the death of McAdam. He was arrested last June for breaching those conditions.

McAdam’s grandmother, who was in court Monday, said she was happy a date had been set.
