A trial will be held in the case of the homicide of a 35 year old woman from Sexsmith last December.

34 year old Christopher Berguson is charged with second degree murder and possession of a firearm contrary to a prohibition order.

He was ordered to stand trial at a preliminary hearing Tuesday.

The woman, whose name is protected by a publication ban, was found dead in a Sexsmith home on December 6, 2013.

It’s believed the two were in a relationship at the time. A trial date has not yet been set.
