Bruce McArthur could stand trial as early as September 2019

The man accused of killing eight men with ties to Toronto's gay village could stand trial as early as next September.

The trial for the 67 year old could begin in September of 2019 or January of 2020. 

Bruce McArthur  was in Ontario's Superior Court of Justice today facing eight counts of first-degree murder.

He was arrested in January and waived his right to a preliminary hearing last month.

The remains of seven of McArthur's alleged victims have been found in large planters at a property where he worked as a landscaper. The remains of the eighth person were found in a 
ravine behind the same property in midtown Toronto.

McArthur's case will next be in court on Nov. 30.
