The teen accused in February's fatal Tsawwassen First Nation stabbing will remain in custody until at least later this month as he waits for a bail hearing.
The 17-year-old, who cannot be named due to his age, made his third court appearance Thursday afternoon. The matter was adjourned until April 23 as defence is waiting for further disclosure from the Crown.
The teen stands charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder after two girls were allegedly attacked.
Police were called to the 1700-block of Tsawwassen Drive at around 10 p.m. Upon arrival, officers found two teenage girls lying on the ground suffering from stab wounds.
Both were treated at the scene and air lifted to hospital.
One girl, 16, succumbed to her injuries while the second victim, 15, was seriously injured.
Last month, the teen was ordered to remain in custody pending the outcome of a second court-ordered assessment.
The judge ordered an assessment for the purposes of a possible bail hearing. The teen already underwent a fitness assessment to determine whether he is fit to continue in the judicial process. The results of that report were not discussed in court; however, the accused did make a brief appearance in the courtroom.
