Jonathan Bacon murder trial set for April 2016

Jonathan Bacon
The trial date for the three men accused of killing gang leader Jonathan Bacon three years ago outside a resort in Kelowna has been set to start April 4, 2016.

Jujhar Khun-Khun, 25, of Surrey, Michael Kerry Hunter Jones, 25, of Gibsons, and Jason Thomas McBride, 37, of North Vancouver have each been charged with one count of first-degree murder.

The trio has been in custody since they were arrested in February 2013.
Bacon was killed outside the Delta Grand hotel in Kelowna after a masked gunman armed with an automatic weapon opened fire on a group of people inside a Porsche Cayenne SUV. Bacon was confirmed dead at the scene, and four others were wounded by bullets. Hells Angels member Larry Amero was wounded in the shooting. The shooting was linked to a bloody gang war between Bacon's Red Scorpions gang and its rival, the UN gang.
One of the passengers, Leah Hayden-Watts, was permanently paralyzed in the shooting. The 22-year-old was sitting in the middle of the rear seat when a second SUV pulled up next to them and its occupants began to spray their car with bullets.

A bullet hit Hadden-Watts in the neck, severing her spinal column leaving her a paraplegic. Her uncle is the president of the Haney chapter of the Hells Angels.

Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun
Three gangsters linked to the late Sukh Dhak have been charged with killing Red Scorpion Jon Bacon and wounding four of his associates in a brazen daylight shooting outside a Kelowna luxury hotel in August 2011.

The shooting shocked the city of Kelowna and led to an intensive 18-month investigation resulting in the arrests of Jason Thomas McBride, 37, Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun, 25, and Michael Kerry Hunter Jones, 25.

Sukh Dhak was killed November 25th, 2012
