A man charged with second-degree murder in the fatal stabbing of his brother, 60, on the weekend will appear in a Yorkton court on Tuesday.

It is expected that the lawyer for Gary Ross, 55 — who is also facing an assault charge in the incident in Melville on Saturday that saw his mother, 86, injured — will seek a psychiatric evaluation for his client.

RCMP say the woman is recovering well in hospital.

Melville is about 145 kilometres northeast of Regina.
