A case involving a Wallaceburg woman facing a first-degree murder charge has been put over to March 11.
Kourtny Audette, 27, made a brief appearance, which was delayed until mid-afternoon, via teleconference in Chatham court on Monday.
Representatives for Audette’s lawyer, Laura Joy, and Chatham-Kent Crown attorney Rob MacDonald, who weren’t in attendance, requested the adjournment, noting that further time was needed for discussions concerning a possible resolution.
Audette continues to be held in custody at the South West Detention Centre in Windsor.
Multiple delays in this case, which dates back nearly three years, were previously waived by the defence.
There is a publication ban during the pre-trial phase of the proceedings.
According to previously published reports, Audette is accused in the death of 24-year-old Nick Laprise.
Emergency crews responded to a Book Street home in Wallaceburg on April 18, 2018, where a man – later identified as Laprise – died at the scene.
