A Clearwater woman charged with second-degree murder in September, 2020, will stand trial early next year.
Ashley Tschritter, 31, was charged after a man was found dead on a remote area of Adams Forest Service Road, which circles Adams Lake, southeast of Clearwater.
She was charged in the death of David Simpson, also of Clearwater.
RCMP responded to a 911 on Sept. 6, 2020, where they found the deceased man. A woman was subsequently arrested and taken to the Clearwater detachment.
The Southeast District Major Crime Unit took over the investigation and the murder charge was laid.
The allegations against Tschritter and the details of Simpson’s death are protected by a court-ordered publication ban and will become public when she stands trial.
The B.C. Supreme Court trial is slatted for January, 2022, in Kamloops. A date for jury selection has not been confirmed.
Tschritter remains in custody.
