Arrest warrant issued for woman charged after standoff in Moncton
Stephanie Mawson, charged with Daniel Beaupré after gun incident, skips court appearance
An arrest warrant has been issued for a Moncton woman who was charged after a nine-hour police standoff in late June and did not show up for court Tuesday.
Judge Paul Duffie issued the warrant for Stephanie Mawson, 26, after she skipped a scheduled appearance in Moncton provincial court, and no legal representative appeared on her behalf.
Mawson had previously appeared in court on two charges of being an accessory after the fact following a standoff on High Street in Moncton on June 25.
Police were called to the area after a report of shots being fired at an apartment building.
A witness told CBC News at the time that she heard five shots and saw a man standing with a gun and someone else driving away in a vehicle.
Mawson and 25-year-old Daniel Beaupré were arrested later that day.

- Man arrested after June standoff pleads not guilty
- Moncton gunshots lead to charges against man, woman
Mawson also appeared before court July 10, when a charge of breach of probation was laid.
She was free on conditions, which included having no contact with Beaupré, keeping the peace and staying away from weapons, drugs and alcohol.
At the time, her case was adjourned until Aug. 8 so she could find a lawyer.
Accused of weapons offences
Beaupré was charged with using a restricted weapon in a careless manner, discharging a firearm at a vehicle, and possession of a firearm while prohibited.
He remains in custody with his trial set for Oct. 30, with five days set aside for proceedings.
During Mawson's previous court appearances, she was represented by Christian Libotte, who was also retained by Beaupré.
Libotte is no longer representing Mawson and it's unclear whether she has a new lawyer.
