A trial date has been set for Dawn Walker who faces several charges for allegedly faking the death of herself and her son and fleeing to the United States.

Walker and her son were reported missing last summer in an area near the South Saskatchewan River. After a two-week, search the pair were found safe in the United States in Oregon.

As a result Walker was arrested charged with several criminal offenses including child abduction, forging a passport, public mischief, and other identity fraud related charges.

After her arrest, the former chief of staff of the FSIN, friends and family alleged Walker was fleeing from domestic violence. The Saskatoon Police Service would say these matters were thoroughly investigated before Walker fled and no charges were laid.

Earlier this year, Walker entered a not guilty to plea to all the charges against her and elected to have her trial heard by a judge alone.

Walker’s trial date has been set for November 20-24 at Saskatoon Provincial Court.
