Joshua Mason was charged with break and enter and assault causing bodily harm.

A crown prosecutor declined to provide more details, but according to court records, the alleged offences occurred in Blewett on January 27, 2013.

Jurors were expect to be selected in November. However, the case has been waived to Hinton, Alberta where Mason is believed to be living.

The Hinton court registry said Monday they have not yet received the file.
