A Kelowna man and woman who face multiple charges of trafficking for importing and exporting a controlled substance on the Dark Web appeared in Kelowna Provincial Court Wednesday.

Both also are being accused of firearm-related offenses.

The couple was arrested and charged between Aug, 31, 2016, to Aug. 9, 2017, after an undercover operation and a search warrant of both the accused home and business divulged a 100 grams of carfentanil.

The trial date for the couple is set for Aug, 19, 2019.
