Special prosecutor appointed to Aryan Guard case
The province has appointed a special prosecutor to the trial of Kyle Robert McKee.
McKee made his first court appearance Tuesday morning.
He is a white supremacist accused of two counts of attempted murder after an improvised explosive device was detonated in northeast Calgary earlier this month.
The 24-year-old is a veteran member of the Aryan Guard, a controversial group that has staged a number of marches and rallies in Calgary.
His lawyer will seek bail for his client.
McKee will be back in court January 5.
A special prosecutor usually deals with cases that are particularly sensitive and complex.
