VANCOUVER - A trial date has been set in B.C. Supreme Court for a man accused of killing four women in northern B.C.
The trial of Cody Legebokoff will begin on Sept. 9, 2013, in Prince George.
Legebokoff is charged with four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Prince George-area women who disappeared in the region starting in 2009.
Legebokoff, a Fort St. James native, was arrested Nov. 27, 2010, when an RCMP officer checked a suspicious vehicle that had just pulled onto a Prince George-area highway from an unused logging road.
When the vehicle's tracks were retraced along the snowy trail, officers found body of 15-year-old Loren Donn Leslie, just hours after she had been killed — and even before her parents knew she was missing.
Further investigation linked the case to the discovery of 35-year-olds Jill Stuchenko and Cynthia Maas, in separate locations, but the body of the alleged fourth victim, 23-year-old Natasha Montgomery, has never been found.
