Jake Sansom, 39, and his nephew Maurice Cardinal, 57, were shot to death on a rural road near Glendon, northeast of Edmonton, last March.

A trial is scheduled to begin May 25.

The accused men were denied bail last summer and applied for a bail review.

A second bail hearing was held today in Edmonton, but details cannot be revealed due to a publication ban.
