The man charged with arson in relation to the Grand Forks and Winnipeg Hotel fires has a trial date set for Tuesday, Oct. 1, according to Rossland Court Services.
Christopher James Cusack was charged with two counts of arson, endangering human life, in relation to the two fires in March 2012.
According to Rossland Court Services, the trial will take place at the court in Grand Forks on Oct. 1.
Court services also said Cusack will have a pre-trial conference in Grand Forks on Sept. 17 and is currently out on bail.
The two March 7, 2012 fires destroyed the Grand Forks Hotel and damaged the Winnipeg Hotel.
Both hotels have since been demolished, with the Grand Forks Hotel site currently a vacant lot and a liquor store being built on the site of the Winnipeg Hotel.
