A man facing murder charges in a mass shooting at a Nanaimo sawmill two years ago is set to go to trial this fall.
47-year-old Kevin Addison is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder after the shooting in April, 2014.
Michael Lunn and Fred McEachern were both killed; two others, Earl Kelly and Tony Sudar, were wounded.
Addison was a long-time employee at Western Forest Products and had been laid off after the forestry downturn in 2008.
Two years later the company re-activated a portion of the mill, rehiring only a fraction of the workers.
Addison did not get hired back.
