Alleged Toronto van attack suspect in court today

The case of a man accused of killing 10 people while driving a van down a sidewalk in Toronto has been out over for a month.

 Alek Minassian, of Richmond Hill,  faces 10 counts of first-degree murder and 16 counts of attempted murder in connection with the April 23 incident.

 Police allege Minassian drove a van down a busy sidewalk on Yonge Street, striking down pedestrians along the way.

 Prosecutors say pre-trial discussions are continuing and the defence says disclosure in the case is still being handed over.

The 26 year old did not appear in court this morning.

The case is next in court on Feb. 28. A months-long trial is scheduled for February 2020.
