NELSON, B.C. — A woman accused of murdering 12-year-old John Fulton of Grand Forks, B.C., made a brief court appearance Thursday.
Kimberly Noyes, 42, appeared in provincial court in Nelson on Thursday afternoon and was remanded in custody for her next appearance on Sept. 2.
Noyes is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Fulton, the autistic son of a neighbour in the same Grand Forks subsidized housing complex.
The boy vanished from the front steps of his home on Saturday evening, triggering a massive search that ended when his body was discovered in Noyes’s empty home Monday night.
Noyes was arrested Tuesday afternoon near Grand Forks Secondary School.
Neither the police nor the Crown are revealing any details about what led to a charge of murder.
