A Lunenburg man charged following the death of a dog will stand trial in February.

Jason Remai, 36, appeared in Kentville Provincial Court on Oct. 21. He is charged with failing to provide an animal, a dog, with reasonable protection from injurious heat or cold.

Remai pled not guilty to the charge. Judge Claudine MacDonald adjourned the matter to Feb. 27, 2014 for trial.

The trial is expected to take about half a day. Remai will be represented by defence attorney Don Murray.

Remai was charged under the Animal Protection Act of Nova Scotia after Kings RCMP responded to two calls about a dog in distress in Wolfville at around 3:20 p.m. on July 21. A member of the public found the pet in a parked Volkswagen in a parking lot at Acadia University.

A police investigation was conducted in collaboration with the Nova Scotia SPCA
