Lack of disclosure from prosecutors continues as the case against Mark St. Amant is now held over until the end of November.

The Britt-Byng Inlet man is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Amanda McClaskin, also of Britt-Byng Inlet, last August.

He is also charged with indignity to a dead body and breach of probation.

St. Amant appeared for a fifth time before a Justice in Parry Sound court at noon on Thursday via video feed.

Counsel for the defence, Riali Johannesson stated in court that she is still waiting for an update on the disclosure of evidence from the Crown.

The Crown attorney present in the courtroom deferred comment on the case to the Crown attorney in charge, Wesley Beatty, also noting the post-mortem report on McClaskin was still outstanding.

Beatty was not present as the case was spoken to on Thursday.

For the McClaskin family in the courtroom, the delays are becoming increasingly frustrating.

Mark St. Amant’s next court appearance is scheduled for Thursday, November 29th at noon in Parry Sound court via video remand.

As yet, no plea has been entered.
