An Edmonton man accused of killing his girlfriend and then dumping her body in a rural area near Innisfail has had his case adjourned after a brief appearance in Red Deer provincial court on Friday.

Mark Damien Lindsay, 25, appeared by closed-circuit television from the Red Deer Remand Centre, where he is currently in custody.

Lindsay is accused in the death of Dana Jane Turner, 31, who was reported missing to Fort Saskatchewan RCMP on Aug. 16, 2011.

Her remains were found 10 km west of Innisfail on Oct. 9.

Lindsay, son of former Edmonton City Police Chief John Lindsay, was arrested in Port Coquitlam, B.C., on March 15 and transferred to Red Deer.

He is charged with second-degree murder, performing an indignity to a body and obstruction of justice.

Red Deer lawyer Dan Wilson appeared with Lindsay on Friday, as agent for Lindsay’s lawyer, Robert Shaigec of Edmonton. Wilson sought an adjournment to give Shaigec more time to review the case against his client, including documents received from Crown prosecutor Anders Quist on Friday.

Lindsay’s next appearance is April 27, when it is anticipated that he will enter a plea and set hearing dates.
