Wade Cudmore, the man accused in a double-murder in Naramata in 2021, was scheduled for a pretrial conference in Kelowna on May 30.

The trial for the double-murder of Carlo and Erick Fryer is currently scheduled for June of 2024.

Cudmore is currently being held in custody ahead of his trial, after his request for bail review was rejected earlier in May in front of a Penticton court.

The brothers’ bodies were discovered a month before Cudmore’s mother, Kathy Richardson, was found murdered in her home in Naramata.

Three Lower Mainland gang members have been charged for her murder following an investigation into Richardson’s killing.

Cudmore is co-accused of the Fryer murders with 35-year-old Anthony Graham, who has not been seen since a targeted shooting in Prince George in 2021. In November, of that year the RCMP issued a missing persons report for him.
