Kyle Peeace’s lawyer Nick Brown was ready to set preliminary inquiry dates but ran into an issue in Moose Jaw Provincial Court on Monday. 

Judge Brian Hendrickson made Brown aware that an election of trial by a provincial court judge without jury for the indictable charge was made before Brown was hired. In order for a preliminary inquiry to happen, the trial must be heard in the Court of King’s Bench. 

Brown suggested an adjournment date on June 10 for re-election. 

Provincial Crown Prosecutor Rob Parker agreed to the adjournment but said there would have to be some give-and-take for re-election. 

Hendrickson also recommended that Brown speak with the court before the June 10 court date to canvas preliminary inquiry dates to make the proceedings more efficient. 

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.
