A man accused of committing bank robberies in Penticton and Kelowna last year has been ordered to stand trial.

Trevor Allan Nilson was told his case would go to trial after his preliminary hearing — which first got underway in December — wrapped up in a Kelowna courtroom on Friday. Evidence presented at that hearing is subject to a publication ban.

Nilson faces charges in connection with the Feb. 16, 2010 robbery at the Toronto Dominion Bank in Penticton and a robbery at the CIBC on Pandosy Street in Kelowna  a few weeks later.

Nilsson is scheduled to return to court on March 21 to set trial dates.
