MacPherson has been in custody since he turned himself in to police in B.C. about 10 days after the stabbing.

This week a Yukon Supreme Court judge ordered MacPherson released into the custody of his parents.

Bail conditions call for a $25,000 cash bond.

MacPherson is to be flown south today. He's scheduled to be placed in a drug treatment program by Sunday. 

His bail will be reviewed within 90 days. A trial date has not been set.
