A man charged with attempted murder is having his case headed to a preliminary hearing. 

Kyle Peeace appeared along with lawyer Brenden Ryan as agent for Nick Brown via telephone in Moose Jaw Provincial Court on Wednesday. 

Ryan requested and received an adjournment to June 6 to give Brown time to discuss preliminary hearing dates with Provincial Crown Prosecutor Rob Parker. 

A preliminary hearing is a hearing before a provincial court judge to decide whether there is enough evidence for the accused to go to trial. Preliminary hearings only take place when the accused is facing indictable offences and chooses to be tried by judge or judge and juror in the Court of King’s Bench. 

Peeace, along with his brother Dillon, was arrested on Sept. 28, 2023, after an alleged machete attack in downtown Moose Jaw. He is also facing charges of assault with a weapon, failing to attend court and breaking and entering.
