A man charged in connection with the second degree murder of his father will remain in jail at least until early next week.

Jeremy Price, 19, had his case adjourned to a later date for a bail hearing after he appeared in person in Terrace provincial court April 1.

The courtroom was packed with close to 30 people in what was scheduled to be a bail hearing but was put over to give newly retained defence lawyer Suzette Narbonne time to review the case and speak to her client.

On March 29, Terrace RCMP reported that they, along with the North District Crime Unit, were investigating a sudden death in Terrace.

Police and other emergency vehicles descended on the 4600 Block of Goulet on the city southside.

A police vehicle remained in front of 4632 Goulet Ave. in the early evening hours and yellow police tape cordoned off the front yard of the residence.

The following day, police identified the victim as Clifford Price, 50, and said that his son Jeremy had been charged with one count of manslaughter.

The charge was later changed to second degree murder.

Police vehicles and yellow police tape remained at the site through March 31.

Jeremy Price is scheduled to appear in court again April 8.
