A Nanoose Bay man charged with murder following a shootout on Wilgress Road in May 2010 will stand trial in Supreme Court in Nanaimo this summer.

Simon Phillip Dockerill was charged with one count of first degree murder and possessing a prohibited/restricted firearm with ammunition following the shooting death of John Charles Borden, 47, on May 25, 2010.

Dockerill’s preliminary inquiry was in November.

Crown lawyer Frank Dubenski said his trial by judge alone will start July 23 with questions around admissibility of evidence. Five days in July are set aside as well as two weeks in October.

The late afternoon shooting incident, which left nearby businesses and residents shaken, killed one man and injured two others.
