An Innisfail-area man accused of second-degree murder in the death of his father, a former Red Deer city councillor, now has a lawyer.
Patty MacNaughton asked for a judge’s order so her client, Aaron Guilbault, 31, can be in Red Deer for his next scheduled court appearance on Jan. 30.
Guilbault made a brief closed-circuit television appearance from the Calgary Remand Centre in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday morning.
Guilbault is accused of murdering his father Timothy Guilbault, 58, of Calgary.
His body was found on Nov. 5 at a family residence near Red Lodge Park.
Police ruled the death a homicide but have not released any details.
Police say Aaron Guilbault was arrested outside of Stettler in his father’s vehicle a few hours after the body of Tim was discovered. He has been in custody since.
