The adopted son of a former Edmonton police chief said he has found a lawyer to represent him at his upcoming trial.

Mark Damien Lindsay, 26, is accused of killing an acquaintance and then dumping her body in a ditch near Innisfail in 2011.

He is scheduled to stand trial in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench starting on Nov. 4, 2014.

Lindsay is charged with second-degree murder, performing an indignity to human remains and obstruction of justice in relation to the death of Dana Jane Turner, 31.

Lindsay made an appearance in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Monday to tell the court he has found defence counsel and been in touch with Kent Tesky, an Edmonton lawyer.

Lindsay said he plans to talk with Tesky later this week to see if he wanted him to represent Lindsay going forward.

The matter will return to Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench arraignments on Feb. 3, 2014.
