A new step will be made in the legal process for a Wallaceburg woman accused of first-degree murder.
Kourtny Audette, 25, is slated to return to court on July 24 to have a judicial pre-trial date set. The matter was also put over four weeks to give her lawyer, Laura Joy of Windsor, time to review disclosure.
Audette, who is accused in the death of 24-year-old Nick Laprise, appeared via video in a Chatham courtroom on Tuesday morning.
She was accompanied by Travis Hughes, an agent who was appearing on behalf of Joy.
He told the court they have been trying to put a bail plan together, but it hasn’t come to fruition.
Audette was remanded into custody.
There is a publication ban on evidence presented during the bail proceedings.
However, according to previously published reports, emergency crews responded to a Book Street home in Wallaceburg around 6:30 p.m. on April 28.
A man, later identified as Laprise, was pronounced dead at the scene.
No further information has been released regarding how the father of two know the woman who is accused of killing him.
