Brent Micheal and Sean Qitsualik (QIT-su-al-ik) will face a judge and a jury of their peers in the NWT Supreme Court.
The two are facing multiple charges involing robberies from December of 2011.
The two are charged in connection with two separate late night robberies, where the duo allegedly attempted to rob one cab driver, then another cab later in the evening, making away with around 20 to 25 dollars.
Micheal admitted to being involved when he was apprehended, but there was some issues surrounding Qitsualik that were cleared up in court Wednesday.
Qitsualik's confession was the center of most of the court's time Wednesday, reviewing what his friend, David Windel, said Qitsualik told him.
Windel said that Qitsualik and Micheal tried to rob a cabbie, but it didn't go well.
It was decided that Qitsualik was aware of his confession and was not forced by RCMP to speak, and he was well aware that he did not have to speak.
Some of the charges the pair face include stealing using an offensive weapon and stealing using personal violence.
