HAMILTON – Preliminary trial dates have been scheduled for Peter Khill, the man charged with the second-degree murder of Jon Styres.
Khill was 26 years old on the day of the incident and Styres was 29 years old.
Styres was found dead on Feb. 4, 2016. Police say the late-night shooting happened when someone came onto Khill’s property and tried to steal a pick up truck.
Preliminary trial dates have been scheduled for Tuesday, March 21, at 10 a.m. in Hamilton court.
Khill has been on bail since mid-February, 2016, after Justice Jane Milanetti released him on $100,000 bail — $50,000 from him, plus $25,000 each from two sureties. He has been residing with his mother in Norfolk County continuing to work as a millwright.
