The case of a man accused of killing 10 people by mowing them down while driving a van on a busy sidewalk in north Toronto has been put over to early next month.

Alek Minassian, of Richmond Hill, Ont., faces 10 counts of first-degree murder and 16 counts of attempted murder in the attack last year.

Police allege the 26-year-old drove a van down a stretch of Yonge Street on April 23, 2018.

Court heard the defence and Crown continue to have judicial pre-trial meetings and those will continue at the next date on May 7.

Late last year, Ontario’s deputy attorney general granted the prosecution’s request to skip a preliminary hearing and proceed directly to trial.

The trial is scheduled for February 2020.
