A psychiatric evaluation has been ordered to determine if an Edmonton man can be held criminally responsible for allegedly killing a Fort Saskatchewan woman and then dumping her body in a ditch near Innisfail.

Mark Damien Lindsay, 26, had his arraignment set over to Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on July 12, pending the completion of a not criminally responsible evaluation.

He was to have set a trial date on Monday on charges of second-degree murder, performing an indignity to human remains and obstruction of justice in connection with the death of Dana Jane Turner, 21.

Turner’s body was found on Oct. 9, 2011, about two months after she was reported missing.

Lindsay, adopted son of former Edmonton police chief John Lindsay, has been in custody since his arrest in a Port Coquitlam, B.C., courthouse on March 15, 2012. He had been taken there to answer to other charges.

On Feb. 1 of this year, he was ordered to stand trial for the Alberta charges.

He had previously been found not criminally responsible for mental health reasons on separate charges, laid in Port Coquitlam.

Lindsay had previously asked for a jury trial.
