Two men accused of killing another man in Prince Albert have been ordered to stand trial.

A preliminary hearing for 22 year-old Dale Keenatch and 19 year-old Charles Townsend wrapped up in provincial court yesterday.

The two suspects were charged with second-degree murder shortly after the body of 19 year-old William Desjarlais was discovered in a downtown apartment building.

Police haven’t said how the man died – only that it was suspicious.

A trial will take place at a later date.
