The trial of Cody Legebokoff has been scheduled to begin in Prince George on Sept. 9, 2013.

The trail date had been pushed back and the investigation into the four counts of first degree murder Legebokoff is charged with had continued, including the search for the body of Natasha Montgomery, his alleged fourth victim.

Legebokoff, only 20 years old at the time of his arrest, was pulled over by an alert RCMP officer from Fort St. James on Nov. 27, 2010, when he was noticed pulling out of an unused logging road late at night.

The logging road, between Fort St. James and Vanderhoof and off of Highway 27, was searched by a conservation officer, who then discovered the body of Loren Donn Leslie, a 15-year-old from Fraser Lake and Vanderhoof.

As the RCMP investigated Legebokoff further, they then discovered evidence they believe links Legebokoff to three other previously unsolved cases, the murders of Jill Stuchenko and Cynthia Maas, as well as the disappearance of Montgomery.

RCMP have since issued pleas for help from the public in finding the body of Montgomery, but it has still not been located.

Legebokoff, from Fort St. James, had been living in Prince George with friends.
