Accused in White Rock murder ordered to stand trial

Following a preliminary inquiry, Jeffrey Caillé has been ordered to stand trial in B.C. Supreme Court.

The man accused of killing White Rock resident Bruce Ridout in an altercation last summer has been ordered to stand trial.

Judge Gary Cohen made the ruling Thursday in Surrey Provincial Court, on the eighth day of the preliminary inquiry into the case against Jeffrey Caillé.

Caillé is charged with second-degree murder, one count of assault causing bodily harm and two counts of assault in connection with Ridout’s death at a home in the 900-block of Ash Street on Aug. 10.

The inquiry, held in French, got underway May 19 and had been scheduled to continue until June 2.

Caillé is now scheduled to appear in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster on July 9.
