Trial date to be determined for P. A. man accused of murder

A trial date in Prince Albert Court of Queen’s Bench for a man accused of killing Cody McAdam is yet to be set.

A preliminary hearing held in October 2020 in Prince Albert Provincial Court determined there was enough evidence for Bryce Bird, 20, to stand trial on second-degree murder charges. Bird elected to be tried by judge alone in Prince Albert Court of Queen’s Bench.

Bird was arrested in March 2020 and charged with second-degree murder in connection to the death of McAdam, 27.

A badly injured McAdam was found in an alley in the 200 Block of 12 Street East in Prince Albert on Feb. 9, 2019. He was taken to a Saskatoon hospital where he died on Feb. 16, 2019.

McAdam left behind two children.

Bird’s case wasn’t on recent pre-trial lists and it isn’t known yet if it will be on the next pre-trial list scheduled for Jan. 8, 2021.
