A date for killer Allan Schoenborn's annual review hearing has been set for Feb. 15, 2013.

The hearing before the BC Review Board was originally scheduled for Nov. 23 but was delayed due to his lawyer's illness.

Schoenborn has been housed in the Forensic Psychiatric Institute in Coquitlam since 2010, when he was found not criminally responsible for the April 2008 murders of his three children — 10-year-old Kaitlynne, eight-year-old Max and five-year-old Cordon — in their Merritt home.

He was granted escorted leaves after his April 2011 review hearing, even though the children's mother, Darcie Clarke, was living in the Tri-Cities. Schoenborn later withdrew his application.

Clarke and her family have been lobbying the federal government for changes to the criminal code relating to those who have been found not criminally responsible.

Last month, James Moore, the Port Moody-Westwood-Port Coquitlam MP, announced the Conservative government is planning legislation that will lengthen the time allowed between review hearings.
