Trial on Jarock death will proceed

A Windermere man will go to trial on charges of criminal negligence, assault and manslaughter

A Windermere man will go to trial on charges of criminal negligence, assault and manslaughter in connection with the death of Invermere resident Cory Jarock.

A preliminary inquiry held earlier this month in Invermere determined that the Crown has enough evidence in the case to warrant a trial.

Brian Panebianco was charged after the April 3rd, 2012 death of Mr. Jarock and has now been ordered to stand trial on all charges.

A date for the trial will be arranged on Monday, August 19th.

Mr. Panebianco was taken into custody in a Fraser Valley prison in July 2012 and released on February 6th, 2013 on $2,000 bail and a set of strict conditions, including not using drugs or alcohol and refraining from contacting witnesses in the case.

Since then, Mr. Panebianco has been under house arrest in Windermere at his stepfather’s home, permitted to leave the house only to travel to and from work, to attend personal matters for three hours on Saturdays , and to travel to meet his Cranbrook-based legal counsel, public defender Greg Sawchuk.

Mr. Jarock was found dead on the driveway of a home in Invermere’s Tunnacliffe Heights neighbourhood.

Details of the case against Mr. Panebianco cannot be published until the case goes to trial.
