B.C. Supreme Court Justice Len Marchand presided over a voir dire hearing on Monday — a hearing at which a judge determines which evidence will be admissible at trial.

Evidence presented at the voir dire is protected by a court-ordered ban on publication until the jury retires for deliberations.

Fraser’s trial is set to begin on Wednesday and the Crown is expected to conclude its case by Dec. 4.

Fraser was ordered to stand trial following a preliminary inquiry in Kamloops provincial court.
