Man to stand trial after Mounties shot

A judge has ruled there is enough evidence to send a man to trial on charges of attempting to kill two Mounties in rural Alberta.

Sawyer Robison was arrested following a standoff on his family's farm near Killam in February 2012.

The two officers were searching the property when they were shot.

Constables Sheldon Shah and Sid Gaudette underwent surgery, survived and later went back to work.

Robison was also charged with the second-degree murder of his uncle, who was found dead in the home following the standoff.

The Crown dropped that charge after receiving new evidence.
