The case was adjourned to June 20.

A man charged with offering an indignity to a dead human body wants to see the Crown's sentence proposals in Vancouver provincial court before making any further decisions.

Lawyer Dominique Verdurmen represented David Alexander Mah on the charge before Judge Patricia Stark on May 31.

Mah, 49, is charged that, between Oct. 15, 2016 and Nov. 1, 2016, he improperly or indecently interfered with or offered an indignity to a dead human body or human remains.

Court information indicates Vancouver and Lytton as offence locations.

The case was adjourned to June 20 for the defence to receive Crown’s sentencing position before making next decisions.

Stark asked if the case could be marked as an impending guilty plea for the next appearance but Verdurmen suggested it be marked as a date-fixing appearance.

Among conditions for Mah's February bail release were that he stay away from about 50 people.
