Prince Albert Provincial Court
The Prince Albert man accused of the brutal assault of Marlene Bird will remain in custody after a judge adjourned the case until the end of the month.
Speaking on behalf of the defence at Wednesday’s scheduled show-cause hearing, Legal Aid staff solicitor Terra Lennox-Zepp sought the adjournment and asked the judge to waive the attendance of the accused at his next court date.
The judge agreed to both requests and adjourned the case to Tuesday, July 29 at 10 a.m. in Prince Albert Provincial Court.
In his second court appearance, the accused wore a gray T-shirt and remained silent, staring blankly from the dock while the judge and legal counsel conferred.
Following the adjournment, he was remanded back into custody.
Leslie Ivan Roderick Black, 29, is facing charges of attempted murder and aggravated sexual assault in relation to the attack on Bird that took place on June 1.
