Trial dates set in stabbing death case
A young person charged after a stabbing death last November will stand trial.
The trial will be held January 3 and 4, 2018.
The name of the person charged cannot be released because the individual is under 18.
Grande Prairie RCMP were called out around 4:30 p.m. November 30 to a report of an injured male.
He later died in hospital.
At the time, police said it did not look like a random act.
Guilty verdict in robbery case leads to three-year sentence
A Grande Prairie man has been given a 36-month jail sentence for his role in a November 2015 hold-up.
The sentence for Chystiffer Eggerstadt covers guilty verdicts on charges of robbery and disguise with intent counts.
He will be given 15 months credit for time already spent behind bars.
A stay of proceedings is in place for a charge of assault with a weapon while a breach of recognizance charge was withdrawn.
A second man, Chancey Huether also of Grande Prairie, pleaded guilty earlier to robbery and wearing a disguise charges. He was given an 18-month jail term and 18-months probation.
All of this comes from a knife-point robbery at a Mission Heights convenience store. Cash, cigarettes and lottery tickets were stolen.
Eggerstadt has previously been given a sentence of 69 days to cover charges from three other cases. Those counts included break and enter, failure to appear, obstructing a peace officer, escape lawful custody and mischief.
