Court date set

Trial confirmation hearing set in murder trial for Port Hardy man.

  • Jan. 10, 2013 1:00 p.m.

Dakota Dillon Johnny has a court date set for Jan. 14 at the Campbell River Law Courts.

The Port Hardy man is facing a murder charge in relation to the death of 28-year-old Cindy Scow.

The mother of seven was killed in an abandoned house on Tsulquate Road on the  Gwa’sala-’Nakwaxda’xw Reserve in Port Hardy early in September.

After a scheduled Jan. 8 court date was put back at the request of the defence counsel, a new date of Jan 14 was set for the accused’s trial confirmation hearing.

A trial confirmation hearing is held in order for the Crown and defence counsels to confirm readiness for trail and to set an expectation of the length of time required for the trial.





A court report in the Dec 27 issue of the Gazette incorrectly stated the date of Johnny’s hearing and claimed that he was in custody.

Johnny was not in custody at the time, but had been released on bail.

The Gazette regrets these errors.
