NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. - Two of four male teenagers charged with manslaughter in the stabbing death of a 19-year-old man in Whistler, B.C., have been granted bail.
Three of the suspects, who are 17, were charged after Luka Gordic was pronounced dead at a local clinic following violence that erupted last Sunday.
Two were released Wednesday by a North Vancouver provincial court judge, but they face a number of conditions, including a curfew.
The third boy was denied bail and is to appear in court again on June 10.
The fourth teen is expected to have a bail hearing Thursday.
There's a publication ban on many details surrounding the stabbing, but investigators have said the suspects all know each other from the Vancouver area.
Gordic's uncle, Gianni Buono, was on hand for the hearing and says his family will return for the suspects' next court appearances.
“We’re prepared to stay the course and stay together, stay strong," he said.
"We’ve got a tremendous amount of community support. You know, we’re going to see this through.” (News 1130, CKNW)
