Trial about alleged manslaughter death of Cowichan's Tyler Noble starts Oct. 15

A manslaughter case involving the death of south Cowichan's Tyler Noble heads to trial Oct. 15.

Victoria News staff says defense counsel Peter Firestone appeared on behalf of his client, Brandon Huth, in Victoria court Jan. 16, to set a trial date for the alleged November 2011 manslaughter of Noble.

Seven days of trial time has been booked. Huth was not present in court Wednesday.

Noble, 20, died from injuries he suffered after allegedly being assaulted at the downtown Victoria corner of Douglas and View streets on Nov. 26, 2011.

Brandon Huth, then 24, of Victoria, has been charged with manslaughter.

It's believed Noble fell during the alleged assault, then died from his injuries hours later at Victoria General Hospital.

Crown counsel, Neil MacKenzie, declined to comment about the case, but said a manslaughter conviction could carry a penalty of life in prison.
