Charges concerning an alleged marijuana grow-op in Cowichan have Daryl (Corky) Fontana, and Clifton Jeffery Ho Tung scheduled to reappear in Duncan court Dec. 12 for a preliminary hearing, court staff said.

That court date will be followed by a trial confirmation hearing set for Nov. 12, 2013.

Both men were represented by lawyers Tuesday in Duncan court, staff said.

The two suspects' federal charges concern their alleged production of a controlled substance, and its alleged possession for trafficking purposes.
