One of the two people accused of a violent home invasion and a subsequent run from police has appeared in court with a new set of bruises.

Andrew Allen Waunch, 30, is facing 37 charges laid by Sylvan Lake RCMP investigating complaints that two people had entered a rural home on June 3 and then committed a number of offences, including attempted murder, kidnapping, forcible confinement, armed robbery, extortion, assault, uttering threats, vehicle theft, dangerous driving, flight from police, shooting with intent to wound and a variety of other weapons charges.

Waunch appeared before Judge Jim Mitchell in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday, via close-circuit TV from the Red Deer Remand Centre.

Defence counsel Lorne Goddard made a comment when his client showed up with fresh bruises on his right cheek and left eye.

“He looks more beat up than the last time,” Goddard said as Waunch was brought into the TV room for his court appearance.

Goddard asked that his client’s plea and bail application be adjourned for a few more days, to Friday, July 19.

Also accused of numerous offences in connection with the incident is Sylvan Lake resident Ashley Dawn Chambers, 24, whose next court appearance is set for July 24.
