Sus­pect in Que­bec Am­ber Alert case still hos­pi­tal­ized

Truro Daily News - - CANADA -

SAINT-JEROME, Que. — The man who fled au­thor­i­ties last week with his six-year-old boy and was later charged in the slay­ing of the child’s mother re­mains in hos­pi­tal af­ter a sui­cide at­tempt.

A Su­pe­rior Court Jus­tice yes­ter­day or­dered the man to un­dergo a psy­cho­log­i­cal eval­u­a­tion and put off his court ap­pear­ance un­til next Wed­nes­day.

The 41-year-old sus­pect has been in an Ot­tawa hos­pi­tal since Satur­day and had been in a coma. Crown pros­e­cu­tor Aryanne Guerin says she was told the sus­pect has started to move his hands and feet and had opened his eyes.

The sus­pect was ar­rested Fri­day by On­tario pro­vin­cial po­lice and his son was lo­cated in a stolen ve­hi­cle in eastern On­tario.

He was charged on Mon­day with one count of sec­ond-de­gree mur­der, but has been un­able to ap­pear in court due to his hos­pi­tal­iza­tion.
