Defense attorney for an Airdrie man charged with first degree murder in the death of another man in town is requesting a bail hearing before a trial date is set.
On September 7, 2019, a large police presence responded to reports of gunfire at Canals Close SW in Airdrie’s Canals neighborhood. When they arrived they discovered Daniel MacDonald, 57, in serious condition. He died on the scene.
Michael Anthony Roebuck was arrested and charged with MacDonald’s death. Airdrie RCMP said the two men knew each other and did not believe anyone else was in danger during the incident.
On Friday, January 22nd, Roebuck appeared on the video surveillance device at the Calgary Remand Center. His attorney told the court that he was working on a bail trial for Roebuck and asked for the case to be resolved to deal with it. The Crown Prosecutor did not deny the application and the judge adjourned the case for two weeks.
Roebuck will be back on trial on Friday February 5th.
