A 100 Mile House man will be headed to trial in the B.C. Supreme Court in Williams Lake.

Crown filed a direct indictment with the Williams Lake Law Courts for Supreme Court.

The investigation into the death of Dumstrey-Soos started when 100 Mile House RCMP received a call around 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 4, 2016, and they were asked to check on her welfare when she didn’t show up for work.

Martel is set to appear back in court on March 8 for a pre-trial conference.
