The date has been set for a trial of two men facing murder charges after a drive-by shooting.

Jordan Larry Barnes of Mission and Jeremy Wayne Davis of Williams Lake are facing charges of second-degree murder in the death of 24-year-old Nicholas Larsen on Blind Bay Road near Shuswap Lake in 2011.

Larsen and his family are long-time residents of Sorrento.

Barnes and Davis were arrested following an extensive police investigation in June 2014.

On June 1, 2011, Salmon Arm RCMP responded to reports of shots fires in Blind Bay shortly after midnight. Police observed two vehicles leaving the scene at high rates of speed.

The trial is set to start on Monday, March 7, 2016 in Kamloops. It is expected to last eight weeks. The jury selection will begin one month prior to the trial date.
