SURREY, B.C. - A man accused of killing B.C. hockey mom Julie Paskall has been ordered to stand trial.
Fifty-three-year-old Paskall was savagely beaten outside a community arena in Surrey, southeast of Vancouver, a little over a year ago.
She had been at the arena to pick up her 16-year-old son, who was officiating a minor hockey game, and she died in hospital several days later.
Yosef Gopaul was charged with second-degree murder in connection with the killing and a preliminary hearing was held this week.
A judge ordered Gopaul to stand trial at B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster, where his next court date is March 12.
Evidence at this week's preliminary hearing was under a publication ban. (CKNW/The Canadian Press)
