Arraignment hearings for accused in Lequiere death set for January


Another adjournment for the two accused in the death of Josh Lequiere pushes their next court date into the New Year.

Andre Paul Dupas has been charged with second degree murder in the stabbing death of Josh Lequiere on May 20. Pamela Joy Moore has been charged with being an accessory after the fact.

Both appeared in Fort St. John court, Tuesday, where the lawyers appearing on behalf of their defence counsel asked for adjournments until January.

The judge told the court that the case has already been delayed significantly. She told their defence attorneys that when they next appear, it will be peremptory on them to ensure their clients enter pleas.

Both the accused are expected back in court on Jan. 5 at 1:30 p.m. for an arraignment hearing.
