Three men accused in the infamous “Surrey Six” slayings will hear allegations against them in court later this month when trial begins in the case where two innocent bystanders died.
Crown prosecutor Kathleen McIntosh said the trial was initially scheduled for Monday but has been moved to Sept. 30 in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver.
The accused men, Cody Havischer, Matthew Johnston and Quang Vinh Thang Le, face charges of conspiracy to commit an indictable offence and murder.
Innocent victims Ed Schellenberg and Christopher Mohan were gunned down on Oct. 19, 2007, along with four other men in a Surrey highrise on East Whalley Ring Road.
Jamie Bacon, one of three brothers in the Red Scorpion organization, was also charged and has been granted a separate trial.
A fifth man charged in the case, Sophon Sek, will also appear separately. His next court date is Jan. 8 in B.C. Provincial Court in Surrey.
