Nov 06, 2012 - MAN CHARGED IN CAR CRASH DEATH OF FOUR FOOTBALL PLAYERS GOES TO TRIAL DECEMBER 2013 (Grande Prairie Warriors case)


The man charged with the deaths of four Grande Prairie Composite High School football players in an October 2011 car crash will go to trial in December 2013.

A trial for Brenden Holubowich, 22, has now been scheduled for eleven days beginning Dec. 2, 2013 in Grande Prairie Court of Queen’s Bench.

Vincent Stover, 16, Walter Borden-Wilkins, 15, Tanner Hildebrand, 15, and Matthew Deller, 16, were killed in the crash on the night of Oct. 22 when they were struck by a pickup truck on the way home from a party outside that city. A Grande Prairie Warriors teammate, Zachary Judd, was also in the vehicle. Judd suffered severe injuries, but is recovering.

Holubowich faces four counts of dangerous driving causing death, four counts of impaired driving causing death, and one count each of impaired driving causing bodily harm, dangerous driving causing bodily harm and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.

In August, Holubowich was ordered to stand trial and had his bail conditions altered so that he could drive while he awaits trial.

At the time, families of the victims were upset by the ruling that allowed Holubowich behind the wheel.

“None of us are real happy about that,” said Stover’s grandmother, Sheila Wilson. “Our lives are changed and four kids are dead. Now he gets to go about his life and that’s annoying. There’s nothing we can do about it.”
