Mom accused of trying to kill family has arraignment adjourned
Arraignment has been adjourned for one more month for a Bashaw mother accused of trying to kill her husband and children.
The 42-year-old woman, whose name is withheld to protect the identities of her children, was charged with attempted murder and arson after a fire just before Christmas 2010.
In Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Monday, Crown prosecutor Anders Quist said his office would like to further investigate the woman’s mental health to determine whether she can be held criminally responsible for the actions she is alleged to have taken.
Defence counsel Brian Beresh is to return to court with his client on Feb. 4.
