A person accused of killing an Innisfail man last month made a brief court appearance in Red Deer provincial court Wednesday.

Malcolm Nathaniel Bourgeois, 40, of Innisfail, has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of Winston “Drew” Grant, 26.

Innisfail RCMP were called April 24 at about 10:30 p.m. to the area of 51st Avenue and 49th Street, where there was a report of an injured man on the sidewalk.

Bourgeois appeared in court through a closed-circuit video link from the Red Deer Remand Centre.

Crown prosecutor Ed Ring told the judge that his office had no files on the case yet. It was adjourned until May 15.

Bourgeois remains in custody.
