Preliminary hearing in Snider homicide underway

A preliminary hearing for one of the four people charged in connection with the homicide of 25 year old Adrian Snider got underway this morning. 31 year old Tommy Paul is charged with first or second degree murder.

The hearing is expected to last about a week and a half, and will determine whether there is enough evidence to go to trial. A publication ban has been issued.

Paul was taken into custody in Nanaimo, B.C. back in May 2015 after a warrant was issued for his arrest. Snider’s remains were found in a rural area outside of Grande Prairie on May 4th, after he’d been missing for almost two months. Police still haven’t released when or how he died.

Also charged with first or second degree murder is Dominic Decque, whose preliminary hearing was postponed last month after he changed lawyers. A new date should be set Monday.

Decque’s brother Patrick had his charge downgraded to manslaughter and a trial is scheduled for January. Courtney McQuinn is also charged with accessory to murder after the fact.
