New date for trial continuance
SYDNEY — A new trial date has been set to continue the trial for a Halifax County man facing drinking and driving charges.
Victor William Rhyno, 48, of Harrigan Cove, is charged with impaired driving, driving with a blood-alcohol level exceeding the legal limit, impaired driving causing bodily harm, driving with a blood-alcohol level over the limit causing bodily harm, impaired driving causing death and driving with a blood-alcohol level over the limit causing death. The charges stem from a single-vehicle accident Aug. 1, 2014, on Highland Road in Victoria County that killed 59-year-old Malcolm (Max) Angus Fraser of Middle River. Rhyno’s trial has already begun and was scheduled to continue this week but has now been adjourned until June 1.
