GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alta. - An Alberta judge has heard that the case against a man charged in a crash that killed four high school football players is close to a resolution.

Brandon Holubowich was scheduled to go trial in Grande Prairie late next year on 16 charges including impaired driving causing death.

Instead, another court date has been set for Jan. 14 with a date for sentencing on Feb. 22.

Four players with the Grande Prairie Composite High School Warriors were killed and another was seriously injured in October 2011 after their vehicle crashed with a pickup truck.

Despite the loss, the team went on to win its league championship a few weeks later.
