Hearing set for accused killer

The preliminary inquiry date has been set for the Oliver man accused of stabbing his brother to death.

In February of 2011 RCMP responded to a 911 call where they found 20-year-old Reece Louie lying outside a residence on Black Sage Road near Oliver. RCMP said the man was suffering from a serious stab wound and was bleeding heavily as officers assisted him until paramedics arrived. Louie was transferred to the South Okanagan Hospital in Oliver then to Kelowna General hospital where he eventually died.

RCMP later arrested his older brother, 22-year-old Kyle Louie. The preliminary inquiry is scheduled for April 30 to May 2, with 16 witnesses being called.
