Daniel Coogan was arrested and charged with the murder of his brother, Finn, and remains in custody.
Tuesday morning it was confirmed the case’s preliminary inquiry — an initial inquiry where it’s decided if there is enough evidence to proceed with the case — is scheduled for Feb. 24 and continues Feb. 28, both days beginning at 9:30 a.m. in courtroom two at the Duncan Courthouse.
Just before 12:30 a.m. on May 4, 2019 RCMP officers from the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP were called to Prevost Place in the 3200-block of Cowichan Lake Road in North Cowichan for a report of a fight in progress.
When officers arrived, they discovered a 23-year-old man suffering from fatal injuries, and he was pronounced dead at the residence.
