If convicted, he could face life in prison.

Also accused in the case are: the woman’s mother, Lucie Brun Del Re, 55, a French teacher in Georgetown; her brother, Giancarlo Brun Del Re; and family friends Alan Honner and Theresa Honner.

The five were ordered to stand trial following a preliminary hearing, which concluded last month. Evidence presented during the preliminary hearing is under a publication ban.

Renato Brun Del Re will also be in court Aug. 26 for a pre-trial hearing.

His daughter is a member of the Dominion Christian Church in Hamilton. He alleges the church is a religious cult and that his daughter had been brainwashed.
