A date has been set for the Duncan trial of a Nanaimo man charged with second-degree murder following the shooting death of his father during a camping trip.

Alphonse Brendon Menard (shown being escorted out of the Duncan courthouse in July 2010) will stand trial in Supreme Court in Duncan starting Sept. 10. The trial is scheduled to last 15 days in front of judge and jury.

Menard’s father Tony, 52, died after he was shot multiple times during a target practice outing with family in the Somerset mountain range west of Nitinat Lake July 4, 2010.

Police reported that Menard, his father and three others were camping overnight.
