The man accused in the death of a former New Brunswick woman in Grenada is scheduled to be in court again on Wednesday.
Akim Frank is charged with non-capital murder in the death of Linnea Veinotte.
Veinotte disappeared while out with her dog near her home in St. George's on December 6.
For five days, police, family and friends searched for the missing mother of two young sons.
It was believed she had been struck by a vehicle, and a pair of sunglasses and a headband were found at the scene that were later identified as belonging to her.
Her dog, Nico, had been struck and was found badly injured.
Four days into the search, 26-year-old Akim Frank turned himself into police and led them to her body in a wooded area.
Veinotte grew up in New Denmark, N.B., and her family moved to Lunenburg, N.S. when she was a teenager, but her parents moved back to Fredericton a number of years ago.
Her father, Reverend Doug Moore, is pastor at St. Matthew Evangelical Lutheran Church in that city.
Frank was charged with non-capital murder and is scheduled to appear in a Grenada court Wednesday on what is called "a mention."
Assistant Superintendant Sylvan MacIntyre told CBC News a mention is when the accused appears in court, as the prosecution indicates whether it is ready and willing to proceed to the preliminary hearing set for January 19.
