Reuben Buhler – the man arrested in relation to a triple homicide in Burns Lake – appeared in the Burns Lake Provincial Court on Feb. 24, 2016, for a focus hearing.
The focus hearing dealt with what witnesses Crown will be calling on the preliminary inquiry.
There will be no more court appearances until the preliminary inquiry takes place on May 24-27, 2016, at the Burns Lake Provincial Court.
Jordan Allingham, Buhler’s Lawyer, explained that the Crown must now persuade the court that there is sufficient evidence to proceed to trial.
Buhler has been charged with three counts of second degree murder and remains in custody.
On April 27, 2015, the Burns Lake RCMP attended a residence in the 200 block of Fifth Avenue in Burns Lake after receiving a report of potential foul play.
Neighbours said they heard gun shots ring out earlier that morning.
When officers entered the residence, they found three people – one woman and two men – dead inside.
