Sentence date in Fruitvale homicide case

Sentencing has been set for next month for a man convicted in a Fruitvale homicide.

25 year old Jordan Shimell was charged with stabbing his uncle, 52-year-old Scott Decembrini.

It happened in December 2014 while Shimell was staying with his uncle and aunt over the Christmas holidays.

Following a trial late last year a judge found Shimell not guilty of murder but guilty of manslaughter. The judge said there was no motive for the crime or even any reason for Shimell to be upset with Decembrini.

However Shimell had been drinking heavily that day.

He’ll be sentenced May 24th in Rossland.
