One of two men charged in the brutal assault on a man in Charlottetown in December is going to trial.
Robert Michael Bryenton, 36, has chosen judge alone after pleading not guilty to assaulting Trevor Acorn.
Acorn was seriously injured in an attack at his Charlottetown apartment.
He was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and later transferred to a Halifax hospital.
He has since been released from hospital.
Bryenton’s trial is set to begin Feb. 8. Two days have been put aside for the trial.
Jeremy Joseph Cummiskey, 22, has also been charged with assault in connection to the attack.
Cummiskey has yet to enter a plea. His case was adjourned Thursday until Dec. 22.
