Hearing Dates For Jessome Murder Accused
Two Glace Bay men charged with second degree murder in the death of Laura Jessome from Bras d’Or have had dates set for a preliminary hearing in the case.
The hearing for 39-year-old Thomas Ted Barrett and 23-year-old Morgan James MacNeil is set to begin on November 13th.
There have been a number of delays in setting dates because Barrett didn’t have a lawyer.
Barrett now has legal counsel and is also charged with the second-degree murder of 21-year-old Brett Elizabeth McKinnon from Glace Bay.
Barrett’s preliminary hearings on both charges are scheduled to begin on the same date.
He’s also due to stand trial beginning Dec. 15, on charges including attempted murder, assault, uttering threats and obstruction of justice.
