A manslaughter trial in Lethbridge Court of Queen’s bench has been adjourned until next week.

The trial for 20 year old Simon Scout and 25 year old Rylan Twigg will resume on Monday (Sept. 23) at which time arguments will continue in a voir dire, whether or not a video statement and re-enactment by Twigg will be allowed as evidence.

The two are accused in the death of 45 year old Kenrick First Rider at his home in north Lethbridge in November 2017.

In the meantime, Scout was released on $5,000 in a mid-trial bail hearing with the justice noting he poses no risk to public safety.

Twigg is also expected to have a bail hearing Friday morning (Sept. 20).

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
