CLARENVILLE, N.L. - Craig Blundon has been committed to trial on a charge of murdering another man in Newfoundland's Bonavista Bay area last year.
Judge Robert Kennedy made his decision Tuesday following a preliminary in provincial court in Clarenville.
Blundon, 18, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Francis Ayles, who was reported missing on Dec. 2, 2008.
Searchers found Ayles's body almost a month later beneath a pile of boughs in the woods behind Brooklyn.
He died from a single shotgun blast.
Blundon has been remanded until his trial at an undecided date in Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court in Grand Bank.
