A Clearwater man charged with first-degree murder will now have to wait two more weeks before a date for a preliminary inquiry will be set.

Parker Matthias, 51, was scheduled to appear in Kamloops court by video link today, but Crown and defence attorneys want to wait for forensic information before moving forward.

Matthias had originally been charged with manslaughter in connection with a house fire that claimed the life of his mother, but further investigation led to the charge being upgraded to first degree murder.

On August 1st, emergency officials responding to a house fire in Clearwater found 79-year-old Kathleen Jennings and her pet dog covered in gasoline and suffering from severe burns. Jennings later died in hospital.
