Psychiatric assessments have been ordered for an Innisfail-area man accused of killing his father last fall.

The body of Calgary resident Tim Guilbault, 58, was found at a family residence near Red Lodge Park on Nov. 5. He was a former Red Deer city councillor.

RCMP investigators subsequently arrested Aaron Guilbault, 31, near Stettler, where it is alleged that he was found in his father’s vehicle.

Currently in custody in Calgary, Guilbault appeared in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday to enter his plea on a charge of second-degree murder.

Defence counsel Patty McNaughton asked to reserve Guilbault’s plea pending psychiatric examination.

McNaughton stressed a need for two reports. One would determine her client’s fitness to stand trial and the other would examine his mental state at the time of the alleged offence.

The reports were ordered and Guilbault is to return to court on Feb. 27, via closed circuit TV.
