Accused murderer picks trial

The 34-year-old Kelowna man accused of killing his fiancé earlier this year has chosen his mode of trial.

Ryan James Quigley has elected to be tried by both judge and jury, and has waived his right to a preliminary inquiry.

Quigley was charged with second-degree murder in the April 1 slaying of Aimee Jane Parkes, and has been in custody since his arrest two days later.

According to friends, the pair had been dating for two years and were supposed to get married this summer.

Parkes’ body was discovered in her home at the Hiawatha Mobile Home Park they shared.

Crown prosecutor Colin Forsyth has been assigned to the trial.

A trial date is expected to be set next week.
