Accused in Sexsmith fatal stabbing to face trial

Joseph Wendland will stand trial for a stabbing that killed one and injured three others at a bar in Sexsmith last October. After two days of evidence, a preliminary hearing this week determined he will be tried on one count of manslaughter and three of aggravated assault.

Wendland was originally charged with second degree murder in the death of 18 year old Donald Moberly. He passed away after being stabbed at the Alamo Bar on October 25th, 2015.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued for Wendland’s arrest, and he was taken into custody three days later. A date for trial has not been set.

*A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Moberly passed away in an Edmonton hospital. We regret the error.
