A 21-year-old man charged in the 2018 stabbing death of Charles St. Jean made a brief court appearance Tuesday, to set a date for pretrial.

Tyler Sels is facing one count of second-degree murder, one count of aggravated assault, one count of assault with a weapon, four counts of possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace and one count of breach of probation.

In January, Ontario Court Justice John Keast committed Sels to trial.

It is alleged he stabbed St. Jean at a house party on Levesque Street off The Kingsway Sept. 14, 2018. St. Jean died from the wounds. Two others were also stabbed in the incident.
