A pre-trial conference has been set in the case of Jeffrey Caillé, the man charged with murder in the death of White Rock resident Bruce Ridout 18 months ago.
According to court records, the proceedings, set during a recent appearance in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster, are to get underway on March 2.
Caillé – 22 years old at the time of his arrest – is charged with second-degree murder, one count of assault causing bodily harm and two counts of assault in connection with an altercation Aug. 10, 2014 at Ridout’s home in the 900-block of Ash Street.
Caillé, who has been out on bail since last February with conditions to reside with one of his parents in Quebec, was ordered last spring to stand trial. The ruling followed a preliminary inquiry in Surrey Provincial Court.
