The 18-year-old suspect, who was 17 at the time of the victim’s death, was scheduled to appear in court Friday morning but was remanded until Jan. 9. He has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Shannon Ashliegh Marie Hogan.
Hogan, 30, was killed following an incident in a laneway behind Lake Street in the early morning of July 16.
Thunder Bay Police said Hogan was the victim of a violent assault.

Deputy chief Andy Hay said forensic evidence, including DNA, played a significant role in the investigation.
