The lawyer for a man charged with manslaughter with a firearm in connection with the death of a Red Deer woman is awaiting more information on the allegation.
Lyndon Olsen, 34, is represented by Red Deer lawyer Maurice Collard, who was in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday. Olsen appeared by closed-circuit TV from the Edmonton Remand Centre.
“I have received very limited disclosure, basically a summary at this point,” Collard told Judge Gordon Yake. More disclosure was expected to be turned over to the defence later Wednesday.
The case returns to court on April 26.
Olsen was arrested on Feb. 6 in connection with the death of Randee Lynn Stewart, 25.
At about 6:15 a.m. on Feb. 1, Red Deer RCMP received a report of possible gunshots in the area of a townhouse complex near 54th Avenue and 43rd Street, followed shortly afterwards by a truck crashing on its way to Red Deer Regional Hospital on 42nd Street.
RCMP located Stewart in the truck near the hospital, where the mother-of-two was taken and later succumbed to her injuries.
Olsen was arrested the following week after a vehicle he was riding in got into a minor collision with a police vehicle.
