Quebec doctor charged with murder: a preliminary hearing before ;seen in May


Doctor Brian Nadler, accused of killing four people in Ontario, is due back in court next May for a preliminary hearing in the case. 

The doctor was originally charged with the first degree murder of Albert Poidinger, 89, at Hawkesbury General Hospital.

The Ontario Provincial Police, however, announced last August that three other murder charges were brought against Dr. Nadler in connection with the deaths of Claire Brière, 80, of Rigaud; Lorraine Lalande, 79, of Hawkesbury and Judith Lungulescu, 93, of the Township of East Hawkesbury.

The preliminary hearing for the doctor who lives in Dollard-des-Ormeaux, in western Island of Montreal, will be held between May 1 and May 5 and between May 8 and May 12, 2023 after a confirmation hearing expected for April 24, 2023, confirmed his lawyer.

Arrested in March 2021 for the first death, Dr. Nadler was released in July 2021 under strict conditions to be observed pending trial. He also had his license to practice medicine revoked.
