In Fort Saskatchewan Provincial Court in Alberta, the case involving a Fort St. John man accused of murdering a prostitute has been adjourned, until February 5th.
23 year old Joseph Laboucan faces a charge of second-degree murder, in relation to the killing of 33 year old Ellie May Meyer, in May of 2005.
When he next appears in court, a prelminary hearing date is expected to be scheduled for an Edmonton courtroom, either late this year or early in 2010.
Laboucan recently won an appeal of his first degree murder conviction, in the gang rape and beating death of an Edmonton teenager.
However, the crown is now appealing that decision.
