DUI while on trial for DUI

A Lumby man who was allegedly impaired behind the wheel the night two people died in a car crash, has had his bail revoked and is behind bars for allegedly driving drunk in Alberta.

As reported in the Saskatoon StarPheonix, Keil Stewart, 30, had his bail revoked in January by Judge Donna Scott following a hearing in Saskatoon provincial court. 

The reporter, Bre McAdam wrote in her story published Jan. 24 that the matter is now under a publication ban.

"Her (the judge) reasons for doing so, and the details presented at the hearing, are subject to a mandatory publication ban." 

Stewart was arrested in 2016 following a single-vehicle rollover crash in Saskatchewan that killed a 27-year-old man from High River, Alta and a 28-year-old woman from Watrous, Sask.

Stewart was charged with several counts including impaired driving and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death. 

His trial began in November in a Saskatoon courtroom but was adjourned to February. 

Stewart was to follow strict condition while released.

"He was released on conditions that he not be in bars or drive a vehicle," according to the Saskatoon StarPheonix story.  "On Dec. 30, he was arrested in Alberta and charged with breaching those conditions, in addition to impaired driving and driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit." 

Stewart's trial has been adjourned until June 25.
