Two men accused of severely injuring an RCMP officer near Kamloops last summer have been ordered to stand trial in B.C. Supreme Court.
Jerry Lee Lamar and Leon Francis Leclerc were each charged with one count of attempting to wound, maim or disfigure RCMP Const. Paul Koester following an incident in Pritchard on July 5, 2014.
Lamar is facing an additional count of refusing to provide a breath sample.
Lamar, from Pritchard, and Leclerc, from Falkland, were ordered to stand trial following a preliminary inquiry in Kamloops Provincial Court, the details of which are protected by a publication ban.
A trial date is expected to be set on Nov. 9.
Neither Lamar nor Leclerc are in custody.
Koester is the Mountie who shot and killed 22-year-old Ian Bush during an altercation in the RCMP detachment in Houston, the small town near Smithers.
Koester was cleared in the subsequent investigation and no charges were laid.
