A man facing three dozen charges, including attempted murder, made a brief court appearance in Red Deer on Friday.
Andrew Allen Waunch, 30, of no fixed address, appeared in provincial court by a closed-circuit television link.
Waunch was represented by legal aid duty counsel Mark Gottlieb. He told Judge Bert Skinner that Waunch was in the process of hiring a local lawyer to represent him.
Waunch is due back in court on July 10.
Waunch, also known as Navi, was initially wanted in connection with two incidents — an attempted murder in Sylvan Lake that took place on June 3 and a pair of gunpoint carjackings on June 9 near Olds and Red Deer.
Also in court on Friday was a co-accused Ashley Dawn Chambers, 23.
Chambers, 23, was charged in connection with an incident at the home of a well-known Sylvan Lake businessman on June 3.
Sylvan Lake allege that Chambers and Waunch entered a home located just outside of the Town of Sylvan Lake and demanded property from the occupants.
She has been charged with nine offences, including armed robbery; unlawful confinement of two people; using a firearm to commit an indictable offence; break and enter of a dwelling; pointing a firearm at a woman in the house; unlawful possession of a loaded, restricted firearm; and three breaches of release conditions arising from older charges.
Chambers returns to court on July 24 and is represented by defence lawyer Kevin Schollie.
Waunch and Chambers remain in custody.
