Trial date set for Grenada man charged with Linnea Veinotte's death

The Grenadian man accused of killing New Brunswick-born Linnea Veinotte in 2015 and ditching her body near a golf course will go to trial on Nov. 21.

That date was set after a status hearing in a courtroom in St. George's, Grenada, last Thursday.

Akim Frank, who was 26 at the time of Veinotte's death, has remained in jail since he turned himself in to police six days after Veinotte disappeared Dec. 6, 2015.

Veinotte, who was born in New Denmark, had a doctorate in genetics from the University of British Columbia and had taken a teaching position at St. George's University in Grenada.

She and her husband, Matt, and their two young sons, Isaac and Lucas, moved to the Caribbean country in 2015 from Glen Haven, N.S.
