The man charged with manslaughter over the April 2012 death of Invermere man Cory Jarock was back in Cranbrook court Tuesday for a bail hearing.

Crown sought to have Brian Panebianco’s bail revoked after he was charged with breach of recognizance on March 22. Panebianco has been in custody awaiting this hearing since that date.

While the details of the breach are protected under a publication ban, Judge Ron Webb found the circumstances were not sufficient to revoke Panebianco’s bail. The 24-year-old man was released back into the custody of his stepfather, to reside at his home in Windermere under house arrest.

Judge Webb added a condition to Panebianco’s bail that if his bail supervisor requires Panebianco to report to someone other than the supervisor, Panebianco be given instructions in writing. He is to carry those instructions whenever he leaves his residence, and give a copy to his stepfather.

His next court appearance will be on June 10 in Invermere Provincial Court, where he will answer to the breach of recognizance charge, as well as the original charges of manslaughter, criminal negligence causing death, robbery, and assault causing bodily harm.

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