A man accused of attempted murder will have to wait a bit longer to get a firm date for his preliminary hearing.

Kyle Peeace appeared in Moose Jaw Province Court on Wednesday with his lawyer NIck Brown on the phone. Brown told the court that he was in a seven-day Court of King's Bench trial and was unable to canvas dates.

A tentative date has been set for Nov. 19. However, Provincial Crown Prosecutor Monique Paquin said they are anxious to have a date earlier than November. 

Peeace has a case management hearing, which is not open to the public, at July 19. Both lawyers agreed that a preliminary hearing date could be set during the case management hearing.

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

Dillon recently took a plea deal for aggravated assault along with charges of breaking and entering and failing to attend court and received two years in prison.
