The preliminary inquiry for a BC man accused of killing a Princeton woman is slated for Sept. 19 in Penticton.
Roger Badour is charged with first degree murder in the death of 56-year-old Gisele Duckham in November of last year.
Badour was arrested in Penticton on Nov. 8, 2011 after he was stopped for a traffic violation on Main Street.
After obstructing police by providing a false name, officers searched his vehicle and discovered three firearms, two of them loaded, along with a small amount of marijuana, according to Castanet news reports.
Once Badour provided his real name he was arrested on an outstanding Canada wide warrant.
When officers went to search Duckham’s home they found her deceased on the premises. It was later confirmed she died from gunshot wounds.
The repeat sex offender’s criminal history dates back many years according to RCMP reports. His sexual offences involved adult women, who he would befriend by telling them he was a minister.
