An Alberta man who admitted in court to killing his girlfriend as well as two other attacks will undergo further psychiatric testing.
Mark Lindsay appeared in B.C. Supreme Court Tuesday. He was shackled at the ankles and wrists. Three sheriffs were in the court with him.
A psychiatric report was ordered last month by Supreme Court justice Dev Dley following Lindsay’s confessions in court. He testified he believed people were out to kill him.
Defence lawyer Don Campbell said testing is not complete. A judicial order was made to extend the time period. The psychiatric report is expected to be ready for Lindsay’s next court date, Oct. 19.
Lindsay is in the midst of his trial in Kamloops. Charges include aggravated assault, robbery as well weapons offences. He is alleged to have attacked an undercover RCMP member undertaking an investigation into the death of his former girlfriend, Dana Turner.
He will also on trial for assault in the jailhouse stabbing of Michel Fougere, who was left permanently blind in the attack by his cellmate.
Lindsay is charged with second-degree murder in Turner’s death. That trial is scheduled to be heard in Alberta.
