Accused murderer Gerald Stanley has been charged with two counts of unsafe storage of a firearm.
Stanley is the accused in the shooting death of Red Pheasant First Nation resident Colton Boushie, who died after being shot during a confrontation on the Stanley farm near Biggar, Sask, in the summer.
He previously pleaded not guilty to the charge of second-degree murder, later being granted bail and released on a lengthy set of conditions. During Stanley’s initial pair of court appearances, rallies were held in North Battleford and Battleford by supporters of the Boushie family.
Stanley appeared in North Battleford Provincial Court at 10:00 a.m. today. His next appearance in court will be a preliminary hearing being held on April 3-7, 2017, in North Battleford.
The hearing had previously been scheduled for January.
