FORT ST. JOHN, B.C – Trial dates for the Sarah Foord murder case are to be set on May 31st.

The decision was made at a preliminary inquiry in March to decide if there was enough evidence to convict the accused. Information from the hearing is under a publication ban.

John Wendell Keyler is charged with second-degree murder and indignity to human remains. He has not been found guilty of the charge.

Keyler was arrested and charged at the end of July 2020 after a two-week investigation into Foord’s disappearance. Foord had been considered missing before her remains were found July 24th in a remote location 75 kilometres north of Fort St. John.

Keyler is expected to head to court for a separate case on June 14th for gun-related charges.
