13th Update on 2 Boys and a Python

Today, an article from Trevor McNally of the Campbellton Tribune came out.It stated that a trial date was set in the deaths of 2 Campbellton ,New Brunswick boys(Noah and Connor Barthe) who both died from asphyxiation from a 45 kg African rock python ( which escaped an enclosure in his apartment located on top of his shop called Reptile Ocean) on Aug. 5,2013.

The reptile shop owner  Jean-Claude Savoie who was charged in March 2015 with criminal negligence causing death wasn’t present today and instead, on his behalf , Mikael Bernard and  lawyer Les Matchim were both in court today.

Crown Prosecutor Francois Doucet and Bernard both agreed that a hearing was needed for a pretrial conference which was then set for next month  on Feb. 12 by Justice Larry Landry.

Preliminary pretrial motions were arranged and set for April 26 and 27. By that time, Savoie is expected to be available for the hearing and not necessarily though for a court appearance.
