TRIAL SET- Evan Caswell Gilmer

Trial date set for accused baby murderer

A trial date has been set for a man accused in the death of an infant.

Evan Caswell Gilmer, who has pleaded not guilty to second degree murder in the death of an 18-month-old baby in October 2008, will go to trial on Sept. 13-30, 2011.

A hearing will begin on Sept. 6, 2011 to determine the admissibility of evidence in the case. This is scheduled to run until Sept. 13, 2011.

Gilmer, who is not in custody, made a brief appearance in Red Deer’s Court of Queen’s Bench Monday.

At about 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 12, 2008 Red Deer city RCMP were called to the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre where an 18-month-old male infant had been transported by ambulance from an apartment building in the 4800 block of 46 St.

RCMP said the infant was suffering from injuries that were “suspicious” in nature.

About 30 minutes later, homicide detectives from the local RCMP detachment were called in to investigate, said Red Deer city RCMP Cpl. Kathe DeHeer at the time.

She said the infant was transported by STARS air ambulance to a Calgary hospital with life threatening injuries. The baby died about 30 hours after he was first admitted into the Red Deer hospital.

In 2008, DeHeer said RCMP could not say how the infant died.

DeHeer said a local man was arrested in connection to the baby’s death by RCMP but then released within 24 hours.

“The person that we arrested is known to the infant and mother,” said DeHeer, adding he was not the biological father.
