While in court, the Crown claimed that without a proper autopsy report, which would officially declare Ball’s cause of death, it would be impossible for the Crown to proceed with charges, as well as potential charges.

Wednesday, Fort St. John's Judge Bowry granted the postponement of the first arraignment hearing, which has been rescheduled for Wednesday, November 7, at 1:30 p.m.

Ball suffered extreme brain damage when he was beaten on the corner of 100th and 100th at 2:43 a.m. on July 22. He later died when he was taken off life support on August 2.
