The lawyer for Cory Sater, the man charged with killing Charlene Reaveley and Lorraine Cruz in an alleged hit-and-run crash in February, appeared in Port Coquitlam court Wednesday to set a date for trial.

But the date to begin the proceedings against Sater likely won’t be decided until July 13.

Sater’s lawyer, Tony Serka, told the court that he was still awaiting witness disclosure statements and a police reconstruction of the Feb. 19 crash on Lougheed Highway at Pitt River Road.

Sater, 37, is charged with 10 offences, including two counts of impaired driving causing death, one count of impaired driving casing bodily harm and leaving the scene of an accident, stemming from the crash that killed Reaveley, 30, and Cruz, 26, and severely injured Cruz’s boyfriend, Paolo Calimahin.

Sater was released on bail in March on the conditions that he live with his father, observe a curfew, have no contact with any of the victims’ families and not drive or be in possession of alcohol.

Once his lawyer is in possession of the disclosures and scene reconstruction, the hearing to set a date for trial could be held before the July 13 deadline.
