KAMLOOPS, B.C. - Two B.C. Mounties and a civilian guard accused of watching two drunk women have sex in a cell have been ordered to stand trial.

Kamloops provincial court judge Chris Cleavely made the order at the end of a preliminary hearing into the case in which the three are accused of breach of trust.

Cpl. Ken Brown and Const. Stephen Zahario, along with a civilian jail employee David Tompinks, were accused of watching the sexual encounter on a video monitor in 2010 without intervening.

Prosecutors have dropped a breach of trust charge against a third Mountie, Const. Evan Elgee.

An earlier investigation determined the two women were too drunk to have been able to consent to having sex.

One of the women later said she had HIV. (CHNL)
