FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The second-degree murder trial of Leon Wokeley, who has been charged in connection with the death of Blueberry First Nation resident Pamela Napoleon over three years ago, has been adjourned until February.

Wokeley’s defence lawyer Georges Rivard told the court that Crown Counsel had provided him with another batch of disclosure of its case. Rivard said that since that disclosure came in the form of a hard drive with thousands of pages of documents, he asked Judge Brian Daley to adjourn the case until next month so that he may determine the best course of action for Wokeley’s defence.

Judge Daley allowed the trial to be adjourned until February 21st.
