Boat death driver to stand trial in August
A new trial date has been set for a man charged with killing a woman by driving his boat dangerously.
The case against Andrew Lake, of Southampton, will now be heard on August 13.
Mr Lake, 27, denies the manslaughter of New Zealander Mary McKee, 62, who died after a marine incident in Hamilton Harbour on June 1, 2017.
He also denies causing injuries to Mrs McKee’s husband, Arthur, and a second man, Charlie Watson, by driving his powerboat in a dangerous manner.
A trial was due to start at the Supreme Court today but was rescheduled due to witness availability.
Puisne Judge Carlisle Greaves extended Mr Lake’s bail.
The defendant was represented by Jerome Lynch QC and the prosecutor was Cindy Clarke.
