No immediate return to work for officers charged in Tracadie man's death

Bathurst's police chief says it could be quite some time before two of his officers that were involved in the shooting death of Tracadie business man Michel Vienneau will be allowed back to work.

Last week a judge ruled there was not enough evidence to order Constables Mathieu Boudreau and Patrick Bulger to trial.

The officers have been suspended with pay since being charged with manslaughter, and Chief Eugene Poitras says a reinstatement review and misconduct investigation by the New Brunswick Police Commission still need to take place before they can hit the streets again.

Poitras says those reviews will only take place after the Crown decides weather to appeal the judge's decision.
