Murder hearing scheduled

A preliminary hearing has been set for the man accused of killing teenager CJ Fowler in Kamloops in 2012.

Originally from the Hazeltons, Fowler, 16, who had been living in Terrace, was in Kamloops visiting friends with Damien Taylor, the man accused in her death.

Taylor is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Fowler whose body was found in Guerin Creek near downtown Kamloops on Dec. 5, 2012.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10 days, beginning on Sept. 22.

Police have said Fowler and Taylor had been involved in a dating relationship at the time of her death.

Police believe Fowler was planning to return to Terrace prior to her death.

Taylor, 22, was arrested after an RCMP investigation that lasted more than a year.

On Jan. 10, 2014 Mounties took him into custody in Kelowna, where he had been living.
