THUNDER BAY - The crown has requested more time to review the pathology report into the death of Barbara Kentner before meeting with police and the coroner to determine if additional charges against Brayden Bushby should be laid.
In an Ontario Justice courtroom on Tuesday, crown prosecutor, Rob Kozak, requested an additional two to four weeks to review the pathology report and then meet with police and the coroner to decide if additional charges are warranted. Defence attorney, Ryan Green, said he understands that all three parties need time to review the report and agreed to return the matter to court on Nov. 6, 2017.
The last time the issue was heard in court on Sept. 25, 2017, additional time was requested by the crown to review the pathology report and the matter was adjourned until Oct . 10, 2017.
Bushby is accused of throwing a trailer hitch from a moving vehicle that struck Kentner in the abdomen on the evening of Jan. 29, 2017 in the area of Cameron Street and Mckenzie Avenue. He was later arrested and charged with aggravated assault. He was 18-years-old at the time of his arrest.
Kentner died in hospital on July 4, 2017. She was 34-years-old.
