Rene Fagan manslaughter case adjourned

Accused to meet with counsel before next date

The case surrounding the death of an 85-year old man in Terrace has been adjourned to April 23.

The accused, Veronica Leanne Bolton, was arrested and charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of Rene Fagan.

The 85-year-old was found unresponsive with stab wounds outside a residence on Soucie Ave. on March 6.

On April 4, the case was adjourned to the end of the month by a Supreme Court judge in order for the accused to comply with instructions.

This typically means the accused needs to consult their legal counsel, but it could also include other directions such as bringing documents to the legal aid office.
