Musse remains in custody at the Edmonton Remand Centre.
Manslaughter trial set for the fall of 2018
Trial dates have been set for a man facing four charges after another man died during what looks like a vehicle theft.
Michael Ginter’s trial by judge alone is set for September 17 through 21, 2018.
Ginter was arrested after the May 14, 2016 death of Nikkolas Steenhuisen.
The 34-year-old B.C. man was in Grande Prairie visiting family. RCMP say he came out of a local hardware store and found a stranger in his truck. That man ran to another truck and tried to drive away.
Police add Steenhuisen was on the running boards of the second truck trying to stop the man and became pinned between the truck and another vehicle. The suspect drove off.
Ginter is facing charges that include manslaughter, dangerous driving causing death, leaving the scene of an accident and possession of stolen property worth over $5000.
