Bras d’Or Man To Stand Trial In Joneil Hanna Case
A judge has ruled there’s enough evidence to send a Bras d’Or man to trial after an accident that killed a teenager in Leitches Creek just over a year ago.
Regional Police say 22 year-old Hayden Kenneth Laffin was driving the SUV that hit 17 year-old Joneil Hanna while he was walking home from a grad party in June of last year.
Laffin is charged with obstruction of justice in the case.
Today’s ruling comes after a preliminary hearing wrapped up in March.
Laffin has elected to be tried by judge and jury.
He continues his release on conditions ahead of a hearing to set a trial date on July 3rd.
