Kenneth Jacob “Jake” Fenton, who was scheduled to appear in court Thursday(Nov. 24) to be arraigned on charges relating to the April 5 vehicle crash death of West Shore RCMP Const. Sarah Beckett, has had his appearance date pushed back again.

Fenton is now scheduled for a Jan. 5 court date at 9 a.m. in Western Communities Provincial Court in Colwood.

The Independent Investigation Office has been looking into the crash and the police involvement in the incident, but has not yet released its report.
