Try­ing to set up a re­lease plan

The Western Star - - Close To Home -

COR­NER BROOK — A Cor­ner Brook man will have to spend a few more days in jail as his le­gal aid lawyer tries to put to­gether a re­lease plan for him.

Wil­liam Mur­phy, 69, is ac­cused of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing a woman last Satur­day.

He ap­peared be­fore Judge Catherine Allen-Westby in pro­vin­cial court on Fri­day for a sta­tus up­date.

De­fence lawyer Sandi MacK­in­non told the court that she has been un­suc­cess­ful in lo­cat­ing a surety for Mur­phy, and asked to have his mat­ter set over to next week so she could fi­nal­ize a re­lease plan for him.

He’ll be back in court on July 11.

Mur­phy was re­ported missing on June 28 and was lo­cated by the RNC on June 30.
