A preliminary hearing for a Saskatchewan police officer accused of leaving a Native man out in the freezing cold began on Monday to determine if there is enough evidence to hold a trial.

The incident, along with the deaths of several other aboriginal men, has heightened racial tensions in the city of Saskatoon and the province.
