Innocent victims Ed Schellenberg and Christopher Mohan were gunned down on Oct. 19, 2007, along with four other men in a Surrey highrise on East Whalley Ring Road.

Jamie Bacon, one of three brothers in the Red Scorpion organization, was also charged and has been granted a separate trial.

A fifth man charged in the case, Sophon Sek, will also appear separately. His next court date is Jan. 8 in B.C. Provincial Court in Surrey.
