Accused murderer faces preliminary inquiry
A man accused of killing a Gabriola Island woman and attempting to murder her son is back in court so that a judge can decide if there is enough evidence to go to trial.
Jason Daniel Cramer, who remains in custody, is charged with one count of second degree murder in the Aug. 3, 2011 death of Elaine Schwartz, 50, and one count of attempted murder in the attack on her 18-year-old son Trevor Schwartz.
Cramer’s preliminary inquiry is scheduled for Oct. 19 and 22-26.
