Martin William Michael Gentles has requested the charges against him be tried in Supreme Court without a jury.

Gentles appeared in Williams Lake provincial court Wednesday morning and heard his case will go to a preliminary hearing first.

A fixed date appearance before a Justice of the Peace is set for June 19 to determine the hearing dates.

On April 29 the Crown approved seven charges against Gentles, including dangerous driving causing death, dangerous driving causing bodily harm, impaired driving causing death, driving with a blood alcohol content over 80 milligrams and causing an accident that resulted in death.
