The second-degree murder trial of Daniel Hodgson has been rescheduled for March 2020.

The jury trial will be held in Iqaluit and will begin on March 23 at 9:30 a.m., according to documents at the Nunavut Court of Justice in Iqaluit.

The trial is scheduled to last two weeks.

Police arrested Hodgson in May 2017 in connection with the death of 23-year-old Brad Winsor.

Winsor was found unresponsive by police at an Apex home in the early morning of May 19, 2017.

Police made the arrest later that same day at the Iqaluit airport.

The trial, which has been rescheduled a number of times, is expected to hear testimony from over a dozen witnesses.

That includes subpoenas for 11 witnesses, which means their testimony has been deemed mandatory by the court.

One subpoenaed witness is alleged to have helped Hodgson prepare to leave Iqaluit after Winsor’s death.

Another subpoenaed witness is alleged to have driven Hodgson to the airport the same day Winsor was found dead.

None of these allegations have been proven in court. Hodgson has been out on bail since July 2017.
