Michael Clairoux and Lee Marrazzo will go to trial on a joint charge of first-degree murder in connection with the death of Beckwith resident Greg Slewidge, 39. They were committed to stand trial following a seven-day preliminary inquiry.
Security was tight as the preliminary hearing wound down. Armed cops guarded entrances and all bags were checked. A preliminary inquiry, used in serious criminal cases, determines whether the evidence accumulated by the Crown is sufficient to proceed with a trial. A dozen witnesses provided testimony in court.
