BRACEBRIDGE - An Orillia man accused of killing a Bracebridge woman six years ago is headed to trial.
Staff at the Bracebridge courthouse have confirmed that the trial for Ian Charles Borbely is expected to begin sometime next week. Currently, the court is still in the process of selecting jurors.
Borbely, 35, is facing a second-degree murder charge and an indignity to human remains charge after the remains of 29-year-old Samantha Collins were found at a Wood Lake property in 2010. Borbely has remained in custody since his arrest in 2011. At the time, police told this newspaper that Borbely and Collins were in a relationship at some point. Since 2011, the details of Borbely’s preliminary hearing were placed under a publication ban.
