The provincial court justice in Fort St. John has denied a bail request of one of the accused in the murder of Josh Lequiere.

Pamela Joy Moore is charged with being an accessory after the fact in the May 20 stabbing death of Lequiere. She did not appear in court for the hearing. Her lawyer, Sigrid Thompson, appeared on her behalf to make the bail application.

Her bail application was denied.

If a trial does happen, it may not take place until 2012.

Josh Lequire’s family and friends were at the courthouse wearing t-shirts with Josh’s picture and buttons with the words “Justice for Josh”.

After the bail hearing, Jim Lequiere, Josh’s father, thanked everyone for coming out in support of his son.

Cheryl Lequiere, Josh’s mother, says her family is relieved that Moore will be staying in jail, but acknowledged the possibility that Moore could be released in the near future.

Andre Paul Dupas is charged with second degree murder in Lequiere’s death. The next court date for both accused is scheduled for Sept. 29.
