One of two suspects from a First Nations community in Antigonish Co. charged with attempted murder is scheduled to return to court in July.
Nigel Henderson, 27, of Paq’tnkek also faces charges of aggravated assault and several breaches.
Henderson, who has been held in custody since his arrest, made his first court appearance in the case June 18; he was expected for a bail hearing in Antigonish Provincial Court Thursday.
Instead, the hearing was adjourned until July 18.
Michael Kane, 36, of Paq’tnkek faces counts of attempted murder, aggravated assault, uttering threats and several breaches in the case.
Kane, who has been in custody since his arrest, was denied bail following his show cause hearing June 20; he has elected a Nova Scotia Supreme Court judge-and-jury trial, and is scheduled for a preliminary inquiry Wednesday.
RCMP say officers responded to an assault involving three men, who were known to one another, on a roadway in Paq’tnkek just after 1 a.m. June 14.
They say a 24-year-old Antigonish man was taken to hospital, and released three days later.
Police say both Kane and Henderson were arrested without incident- Kane in Paq’tnkek the same day as the incident, Henderson in Baddeck the next day.
