The trial for a St. Albert resident facing a first degree murder charge is set to begin next month after being delayed for the past three years.

In the summer of 2017, then 28-year-old Beryl Musila was arrested and charged with first degree murder and indignity to human remains following an investigation into the death of St. Albert senior Ronald Worsfold. 

Worsfold, who was 75 at the time of his death, was found deceased in a rural area near Stony Plain two days after he was reported missing in July 2017. 

Musila's trial was originally scheduled to begin on April 14, 2020, but it was then delayed until the fall of 2021, and further delayed to the fall of 2022. 

This past November The Gazette reported the trial was delayed until the spring, with the month-long trial now expected to start on April 17 and come to a close on May 26.
