The decision on whether David Leon Stefanczuk will be granted bail is going to come at a later date.

The decision on whether David Leon Stefanczuk will be granted bail is going to come at a later date.

Justice of the Peace Diane Lafleur said Monday she is reserving her decision, saying she has much to consider. She set a date of June 23 to give her decision.

On Monday, three people were sworn in as sureties, each accepting a $7,500 responsibility if Stefanczuk is granted bail.

Stefanczuk's lawyer, Alex Toffoli, called the sureties “people of honest means,” and had no doubt they would ensure the accused adhered to his bail conditions, if granted.

Assistant Crown attorney Kevin Ludgate and federal prosecutor Lisa Goulet were both opposed to his release.

Stefanczuk is charged with manslaughter in connection to an overdose death in Sudbury in February of this year. He is also charged with trafficking a Schedule 1 substance. He was arrested on May 14. The name of the victim has not been released.
