Benjamin Côté, accused of the first degree murder of Rino St-Pierre in Rivière-Verte in 2021, will undergo his preliminary investigation from October 23 to 25.

The man from Fermont appeared in provincial court in Edmundston, New Brunswick, on Wednesday.

He is one of two Quebecers accused in connection with the homicide of a New Brunswicker almost three years ago.

Rino St-Pierre, 60, was found dead on Industrielle Street in Rivière-Verte, now part of the municipality of Edmundston, on August 15, 2021.

Two years later, in August 2023, two suspects were apprehended in the Rivière-du-Loup region, Quebec: Benjamin Côté and Angie LeClerc.

The two forty-year-olds are accused of first degree murder.
