Grossmith trial set for Nov.

A trial date has been set for the man accused of killing his mother with a hammer in September 2012.

Conor Frederick Grossmith will stand trial later this year by judge alone, having waived his right to a jury trial.

The trial will begin Nov. 17 and it’s expected to last 25 days.

Grossmith is accused of attacking his 57-year-old mother with a hammer in her Kelowna home.

Kate Gilchrist suffered fatal injuries and died in hospital nine days later.

Grossmith has spent some of the time since his arrest at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Port Coquitlam.

His defence counsel is expected to argue that Grossmith was not criminally responsible due to a mental disorder.
