Delta Teen’s Murder Trial Set For August In Death Of Laura Szendrei

A date has been set for the murder trial for the juvenile charged in the death of a North Delta teen.

Fifteen-year-old Laura Szendrei died on Sept. 26, 2010, one day after she was viciously beaten in broad daylight while walking along a path in Mackie Park.

The accused, who also lived in North Delta, was 17 years old at the time of the murder, so his identity is protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. He was charged with first-degree murder after his arrest last February.

According to Delta police, the trial is set to begin on Aug. 13 and run until early October.
