Dahl trial in Boettger’s death scheduled for March 2014

More than two years after a teenaged girl from Stettler died in a truck collision, Trevor James Dahl of Stettler is scheduled to go

More than two years after a teenaged girl from Stettler died in a truck collision, Trevor James Dahl of Stettler is scheduled to go to trial next March in connection with the fatality.

Appearing in Red Deer court last week, Dahl’s case was set for a 2014 trial in Court of Queen’s Bench from March 11 to 19.

Koralea Boettger, 17, died in a single-vehicle crash in February 2012.

Dahl faces charges of impaired driving causing death, impaired driving over .08 causing death, dangerous driving of a motor vehicle causing death and refusing to give a blood sample causing death.

Stettler RCMP reported that Dahl was intoxicated when he drove a pickup truck that left a dirt road near Stettler and crashed into a stand of trees in the wee hours of the morning.

A preliminary hearing in Stettler Provincial Court in late February presented enough evidence for the case to proceed.
