Prelim hearing set for Grossmith
Oct 7, 2013 / 5:09 pm
A preliminary hearing is set for the man accused of killing his mother with a hammer. The incident happened just over one year ago.
Conor Grossmith is accused of murdering Kate Gilchrist on Sept. 4, 2012 while grossly intoxicated and possibly suffering from a manic disorder. Gilchrist died in hospital nine days later.
The hearing will begin Oct. 15 and is expected to last a number of days.
An application was heard this morning to allow one witness, a paramedic currently stationed in Saskatchewan, to appear by video. The ambulance driver will testify about arriving at the scene and then later speaking with Grossmith inside the cells at the Kelowna RCMP detachment.
Grossmith’s lawyer Joe Gordon agreed to the application.
A publication ban has been ordered for the hearing and facts will not be able to be reported on until the accused has been discharged or the trial has ended.
