Accused to stand trial for Langford murder

The murder trial of Langford resident Joseph Knelsen is headed to trial in B.C. Supreme Court in Victoria.

Knelsen. 44, is charged with first degree murder in the death of Gordon Berg, 53, also of Langford.

Knelsen’s lawyer Paul Pearson confirmed his client is headed to trial following four days of witness testimony during a preliminary inquiry in October.

A publication ban prohibits printing testimony from the preliminary inquiry.

Berg was found deceased at 11 p.m. on March 7 at a Mill Hill home at 2557 Jeanine Dr. in Langford.

Police have said the men knew each other and there was a weapon involved in the altercation.

Knelsen’s next court appearance set for Nov. 30 in B.C. Supreme Court, where a trial date could be set.
