The investigation for the release of Christian Poisson, 38, concluded that he could find his family while awaiting trial. The man will have to appear at all his summonses before the Court.

However, he will have certain conditions to respect, such as not leaving the province, not moving, not using weapons or ammunition and not drinking alcohol or being in a bar.

Although he is not allowed to set foot in a licensed establishment, Christian Poisson will be able to continue working at the Bar Terrasse Côté-Sud. However, he is strictly forbidden to consume.

For his relatives who were on the scene during the appearance, this news is a brief relief.

Accused of manslaughter, Christian Poisson would have beaten Yannick Dufort, 38, to death during an altercation which would have taken a sad turn in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday.

In all likelihood, the altercation broke out when the accused sought to defend his girlfriend.

Christian Poisson will have to return to court on October 20.

This is when he will choose whether he wants a trial by jury or judge alone.
