PICTOU – Two Pictou County residents accused of breaking into a home in Springville will have their cases go to trial in November.
Megan Courtney Beaton, 33, of Pictou and Jeffrey Curtis John Holley, 35, of Stellarton pleaded not guilty to the charge of break-and-enter into a dwelling house with the intent to cause mischief in connection with an alleged incident on April 4.
Beaton also pleaded not guilty to charges of carrying a firearm in a careless manner and possession of a weapon from the same date.
Holley pleaded guilty to carrying a firearm in a careless manner and possession of a firearm while the Crown is expected to withdraw a third weapons charge.
The two people will stand trial Nov. 25 and 26 in Pictou Provincial Court. Holley’s sentencing on the weapons charges is expected to take place during this time as well.
Holley has pleaded not guilty to a separate charge of assault causing bodily harm from an alleged incident in November 2013 and will have this trial heard on November 26 following the completion of the trial involving the break-and-enter.
