A man currently in jail in Kelowna for robbery and aggravated assault has been ordered to stand trial for the 2010 murder of Surrey's Teri-Lyn Williams.

Dustin Lee Lalonde, an overweight man with black hair, has been appearing in Surrey Provincial Court via video from a Kelowna prison as his case proceeds.

Lalonde, 30, was charged with second-degree murder in September.

Williams' body was found in a ditch in North Surrey in June 2010. From Calgary, the 41-year-old woman was described by a friend as an amateur bodybuilder who ran her own cleaning company before her life fell apart. She then drifted into debt, drug use and prostitution, said another friend.

Lalonde is currently serving a four-year sentence for robbery and aggravated assault convictions, related to an incident in August 2010.

His trial date on the Surrey murder charge is scheduled to be set in early March.
