Creston man charged with murder to stand trial next year

Mitchell McIntyre is charged with second-degree murder

A trial date has been set next year for a Creston man charged with second-degree murder.

Mitchell McIntyre will stand trial in BC Supreme Court in Cranbrook starting on July 2, 2024, which is expected to run for most of the month, while pre-trial applications are set to begin in April 2024.

Mitchell was charged for his alleged role in the death of Julia Howe on Feb. 6, 2022, according to a court document.

According to an RCMP press release, police responded to a Creston home after a woman was found deceased on Feb. 6, 2022.

The investigation evolved from a sudden death investigation into a suspected homicide.

McIntyre was arrested on March 16, 2022 and remains in custody.
