Case of man charged in Antigonish Co. attempted murder won't go to trial

A suspect arrested following an attempted murder in Antigonish Co. will not stand trial in the case.

RCMP say they received a report of an attempted murder in Nov. 2015, although the actual incident took place early in the morning one week before.

They say members of the Major Crime Unit found a variety of weapons, including a machete, knives and nun chucks, when they searched a home on Petow Loop Extension on the Paq'tnkek First Nation in Afton the day after the incident was reported.

Police charged Issiah Thomas Julian, 20, of Paq'tnkek with attempted murder, aggravated assault, possession of dangerous weapons and several breaches.

Julian made his first appearance in the case shortly after his arrest, and was sent for a 30-day assessment at the East Coast Forensic Hospital; he was released from custody on conditions following a bail hearing in Dec. 2015.

He had a preliminary inquiry, which determines if there is enough evidence to send a case to trial, in Antigonish Provincial Court Monday; the judge in the case ruled there wasn't enough evidence for trial, and the attempted murder and aggravated assault counts were discharged.

Julian has pleaded guilty to three breaches in the case; his weapons charge will be dealt with when he's sentenced for his breaches.

He also faces four charges in connection with what police described as a serious sexual assault at the Paq'tnkek First Nation in May 2016; he pleaded not guilty to those charges, and his four-day trial is scheduled to get underway in November.
