A preliminary inquiry has been set for two men charged in connection with the home-invasion death of Corey Bennett in South Surrey last November.

The proceedings are to determine if there is enough evidence in the case against Mathieu Rene Bernard and Donald James Chad to warrant a trial.

Bernard is charged with manslaughter  “where a firearm is used in the commission”; Chad is charged with the same firearm count, as well as murder.

The men were arrested less than two weeks after Bennett’s Nov. 9 death.

The 44-year-old father and grandfather was pronounced dead in hospital following an incident police determined was a “targeted home invasion” at a residence in the 2600-block of King George Boulevard.

According to court records, the inquiry is set for Oct. 14-22 in Surrey Provincial Court.
