A preliminary hearing was held in Anderson’s case last Wednesday and Thursday. Following the hearing, the case was committed to a full trial.

A preliminary hearing is a proceeding that is held to determine if there is enough evidence to require a trial. The evidence given at the hearing was subject to a publication ban.

Brunetti died in a tragic car crash near 12 Mile south of Revelstoke on Sept. 29, 2011. He was only 22 years old.

Anderson, who was a pall bearer at Brunetti’s funeral, is charged with impaired driving causing death, causing an accident resulting in death and criminal negligence causing death.

A trial date will be set in Jan. 23 in Salmon Arm. Anderson’s lawyer Grant Hardwick has elected for a jury trial in Revelstoke.
