Wengenmayr trial to resume Oct. 10
Oct 2, 2012 / 2:30 pm
The trial of a Kelowna man accused of drunk driving causing death is scheduled to resume Oct. 10 following two weeks of adjournment.
Crown counsel’s unavailability in the trial of 21-year-old Cody Richard Wengenmayr, the man accused of striking and killing six-year-old Trey Alphonse as he crossed Harvey Avenue with his mother two years ago, has resulted in the trial’s adjournment since the week of Sept. 18, when the trial began.
During the first week of trial, the Crown called several witnesses to the stand, including a forensic investigator who testified that Wengenmayr had a clear view of the road in front of him prior to the crash. The crash occurred near Milestone’s Restaurant between 10 and 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 30, 2010.
The Crown is expected to bring forth evidence that Wengenmayr was intoxicated as he struck Trey and his mother as they attempted to cross the street.
Wengenmayr faces a total of six charges of impaired driving causing death and injury, causing an accident resulting in death and injury, and dangerous driving causing death and injury.
