LETHBRIDGE, Alta. - A man accused of killing a two-year-old girl and her father is to face a preliminary hearing in June.
Derek Saretzky is charged with first-degree murder in the September deaths of Hailey Dunbar-Blanchette and her father Terry Blanchette.
Saretzky is also charged with committing an indignity to the little girl's body.
He appeared briefly in a Lethbridge court this morning via closed-circuit television from the Calgary Remand Centre.
The preliminary hearing, which is to determine if there is enough evidence for a trial, is scheduled for 10 days starting June 20.
Members of the Blanchette family, including the little girl's grandmother Terry-Lynn Dunbar, were in court, but declined to comment afterwards.
