The man who stands accused in the Aug. 3 stabbing death of former Revelstoke resident Daniel Levesque made a brief appearance in Victoria court last week.

The man who stands accused in the Aug. 3 death of former Revelstoke resident Daniel Levesque made a brief appearance in Victoria court last week.

Joshua Tyler Bredo, 26, is facing a charge of second degree murder.

Bredo did not enter a plea at the Sept. 1 court appearance and the case was put off until Nov. 22.

A spokesperson for the prosecutor’s office in Victoria explained the courts there use a “timeline hearing” system that is designed to limit frequent appearances where essentially nothing happens.

It is expected that the defence will be ready to proceed with a plea on Nov. 22. It is also possible the next court appearance could be bumped up if the defence is ready to proceed before that date.

Correction: An earlier version of this article said Levesque’s death was due to stabbing. In fact, police say he died in an altercation and not of stab wounds.
