A young Stettler man facing multiple charges in the death of a high school student last winter has picked up two additional charges for breach of bail conditions.
Trevor James Dahl, 20, appeared in Stettler Provincial Court last Thursday through closed-circuit TV from the Red Deer Remand Centre and was scheduled for an appearance in Red Deer Provincial Court this Thursday.
He has been charged with two more counts of failing to comply with bail conditions when police say he was in possession of and consumed alcohol, the court was told.
Along with two earlier charges of failing to comply with conditions, Dahl faces charges of impaired driving causing death, impaired driving over .08 causing death, dangerous driving of a motor vehicle causing death and refusing a blood sample causing death.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for next Feb. 26 and 27.
Police reported last February that Dahl was heavily intoxicated when he drove a pickup truck that left a dirt road near Stettler and crashed into trees, killing 17-year-old passenger Koralea Boettger of Stettler.
Several other cases were finalized in Stettler court last week.
— Chad Everett Davidson was fined a total of $1,800, with $600 each for obstructing a police officer by giving a false name, and for two counts each for failing to comply with a court order, when he broke curfew and failed to present himself when a probation officer knocked on the door of his house.
— Jasmine E. Burgoin was fined $115 each for consuming alcohol in a public place and for failing to appear in court.
— William A. McKendrick was issued a common-law peace bond for 12 months for a charge of assault last Oct. 28.
“I encourage you to show better judgment,” Judge E.D. Riemer told McKendrick.
