Collin Ovid Scott, 36, of West Bay has been committed to stand trial for the slaying of Maureen Scott, after Magistrate Grace Donalds on Thursday ruled there was sufficient evidence for the case to proceed to Grand Court.
The Magistrate set 5 September as the date the Grand Court will hear the case.
Mr. Scott chose not to enter a plea during Thursday’s summary court hearing. He was represented by Defence Attorney Ben Tonner.
Mr. Scott is accused of killing Mrs. Grant, 34, on the night of 9 July.
