A trial date for a North Okanagan woman accused of first-degree murder will be set later this month, following another adjournment.
Lynda Saundry, 61, is charged in relation to the killing of 55-year-old Barry Jones, whose body was found in a home near Round Lake, west of Armstrong, on July 30, 2020.
She was arrested a few days after the discovery. Police said Saundry and Jones knew each other.
Saundry was committed to stand trial on first-degree murder charges following a preliminary inquiry in July 2021, after she elected to be tried by judge and jury in May 2021.
A trial date was meant to be decided today, Feb. 8, but the hearing was adjourned and a date will now be set on Feb. 22.
Saundry had previously appeared in court on Jan. 10 for the same purpose.
