CALGARY - A trial date for an Alberta man charged in the killing of a peace officer is expected to be set next Friday.

Trevor Kloschinsky is charged in the first-degree murder of Rod Lazenby on an acreage near Priddis, just south of Calgary, in August 2012.

A psychiatric assessment has taken months, but is now complete.

Defence lawyer Maggie O'Shaughnessy believes her client is not criminally responsible because of a mental disorder.

Lazenby, a retired RCMP officer who was responsible for enforcing bylaws in the Municipal District of Foothills, died after going to Kloschinsky's property to investigate a dog complaint.
