The case of a Wallaceburg woman facing a first-degree murder charge continues to move slowly through the courts.

The court heard Wednesday the Crown and defence still have some issues to discuss regarding the murder charge against Kourtny Audette, 27, following last month’s judicial pre-trial.

Audette’s case was adjourned to Jan. 28, when it’s expected the matter will only be spoken to in order to set another date.

Audette continues to be held in custody at the South West Detention Centre in Windsor.

Delays in this case, which already dates back two-and-a-half years, have already been 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.
