Invermere manslaughter case delayed

Brian Panebianco’s trial date in connection with the April 2012 death of Cory Jarock has not yet been set

A Windermere man will have to wait a little longer to learn when he will go to trial on charges of manslaughter.

Brian Panebianco, 24, is charged over the April 2012 death of Cory Jarock in Invermere.

Lawyers for Panebianco and the Crown appeared in Cranbrook Supreme Court on Monday, August 19, ostensibly to fix a date for Panebianco’s trial on charges of manslaughter, criminal negligence causing death, robbery, and assault causing bodily harm.

But defense lawyer Greg Sawchuk told Justice Miriam Maisonville that a date could not be set that day for the trial.

“We are not able to fix a date because the scheduling office requests more time,” said Sawchuk.

The case will next be back in court on September 23 at 2 p.m. in Cranbrook to fix a date.

Cory Jarock was found deceased on the driveway of a home in the Tunnacliffe Heights neighbourhood of Invermere on April 3, 2012.
