A Windsor man accused of using an imitation firearm, a pellet handgun, in robbing a person will stand trial in February.
Tyson Lee Murphy, 20, is also charged with using violence in stealing cash and a backpack from a person and failing to comply with his recognizance. Murphy pleaded not guilty to the charges on Aug. 22. He elected provincial court and was released on a $1,000 non-cash recognizance with two sureties. It’s alleged that the offences were committed in Windsor on Aug. 20.
Murphy was already facing charges of having his face covered with cloth with the intent to commit an indictable offence; committing mischief by willfully damaging a person’s car to a value not exceeding $5,000; intentionally or recklessly damaging a car with fire and stealing gas from Vaughn’s Market valued at less than $5,000. These charges stem from incidents alleged to have occurred in Windsor on Dec. 5 and 7, 2013.
Murphy pleaded not guilty to these charges in February. The matters have been adjourned to the previously set trial date of Feb. 9.
