A former Abbotsford man whose brother was gunned down last month has re-elected to have a judge alone preside over his trial on a cocaine conspiracy charge.

Jarrod Wayne Bacon told the court of the change as jury selection for his October trial was set to begin this week.

His co-accused, Arnold Wayne Scott, also re-elected to be tried by judge alone, federal Crown Martha Devlin confirmed Tuesday,

The case is scheduled to start in October.

Bacon is the younger brother of Jonathan Bacon, a Red Scorpion gangster shot to death outside a Kelowna casino Aug. 14. Two others linked to the Hells Angels and Independent Soldiers were injured, as were two women passengers in their vehicle. No one has yet been charged in the high-profile targeted slaying.

Jarrod Bacon and Scott were arrested in November 2009 after a undercover police investigation dubbed E-Pintle.

Bacon remains in pre-trial custody, while Scott was released on bail.
