Daoust brothers in court
Oct 28, 2013 / 7:53 pm
The two brothers facing charges in connection with a bombing in August in Oliver, made a court appearance in Penticton on Monday.
Following a brief explanation by crown and defence regarding the circumstances, Judge Meg Shaw ordered a 30 day psychiatric assessment for 19-year-old Stephan and 23-year-old Eric Daoust, both of Oliver.
During that period, both men will remain in custody, with the next court appearance scheduled for Nov. 20.
The pair face a charge of using explosives under Section 81 (1) (c) of the criminal code.
Police became involved when a resident came to the local RCMP office with a piece of metal shrapnel believed to be connected with nearby damage to a homeowner's garage and a vehicle parked nearby.
RCMP attended the scene and determined that an improvised explosive device had been placed and detonated under a vehicle parked in the residential alleyway between Okanagan Street and Earle Crescent.
No one was injured in the blast, but there was damage from the flying shrapnel to the vehicle and a nearby homeowner's garage.
Stephan Daoust was also recently charged and convicted with assault with a weapon, break and enter and other charges related to breaking into the same home on Sept. 8 and discharging a can of bear spray,
The violence was directed at a young man who lived in the home where the car was damaged. The three know each other and there was a longstanding mutual dislike, according to Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.
