The Labradorian - - FRONT PAGE - BY EVAN CA­REEN

The pre­lim­i­nary in­quiry in the case of Jonathon Henoche, who is ac­cused of the mur­der of Reg­ula Schule, has been ex­tended.

The in­quiry al­ready ran from Aug. 28 to Sept. 1 and is now sched­uled to go into a sixth day on Sept. 21. A pre­lim­i­nary in­quiry is used to de­ter­mine if there is enough ev­i­dence to pro­ceed to trial.

Since Henoche is charged with sec­ond-de­gree mur­der, along with a hand­ful of other charges, the mat­ter would then pro­ceed to the Supreme Court.

Henoche, 30, is charged in con­nec­tion with the death of the 88-year-old for­mer mis­sion­ary in July of 2016.

Po­lice said at the time of the fire that they deemed the death sus­pi­cious and RCMP had searched neigh­bour­hoods in the com­mu­nity in re­la­tion to the in­ves­ti­ga­tion through­out the re­main­der of the sum­mer. Henoche was charged in Septem­ber and has been in cus­tody since that time.

Schule did a lot of char­ity work in the com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing work­ing with inmates at the prison and of­fer­ing food and shel­ter to those in need.

Henoche is also charged with ar­son and break and en­ter in re­la­tion to a house fire at the home of well­known Happy Val­ley-Goose Bay carver and mu­si­cian John Neville.
