Jason King set to stand for trial in St. John’s
Decision made for man charged with stabbing woman in Bay Roberts Dollarama
Jason King will be heading to St. John’s to stand trial for several charges, including attempted murder.
King appeared via videolink in the Harbour Grace courthouse on May 9 for Judge Bruce Short’s decision on the matter.
King was charged in March of 2016 after an incident in the Dollarama store in the Bay Roberts Mall, where police responded to a call reporting a woman had been stabbed.
King was facing seven charges – attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm, assault, failure to comply with probation, and mischief relating to damaging property.
In Short’s decision, the charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault, and breach of probation were set to trial. The remaining charges were dropped.
King will be tried by a judge alone at Supreme Court in St. John’s. A date has not yet been set for the trial. The accused has not entered any pleas.
