A man accused of murder in his brother’s stabbing death has pleaded not guilty and will have a preliminary hearing in June.
On June 6, the BC Prosecution Service approved the second-degree murder charge against Alexander Trimble, 27, in connection with the death of Zachary Trimble.
Alexander Trimble was arrested June 5 after Vancouver police responded to reports of an assault at a home near Bruce Street and East 49th Avenue. The call came in shortly before 3 a.m. Once on scene, police discovered a 23-year-old man badly injured outside the house. He later died from his injuries.
Preliminary inquiries are held to determine if sufficient evidence exists to proceed to trial.
Alexander Trimble remains in custody at North Fraser Pretrial Centre.
