Richard Oland was 69 when he was found dead in his Canterbury Street office in Saint John on July 7, 2011.

The Oland family operates Moosehead Breweries — the oldest independently owned brewery in Canada — although Richard Oland left Moosehead in 1981.

In December, Dennis Oland was ordered to stand trial following a preliminary inquiry that lasted 37 days and heard from 42 witnesses.
