New Trial Date For City Man Charged With Attempted Murder

An adjournment ordered as the trial of 22-year old Trent Byers was scheduled to get underway. Byers will remain in jail until his new trial date now set to begin on October 12th.

Byers is charged with attempting to murder Bruce Higgins, who was found lying on the corner of Main and Albert in the early morning hours of April 15th suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach.

Higgins told police he was going to meet Byers at the corner of Albert and Main to make a drug buy but says a car pulled up and that's when he was shot.
