Foord murder case adjourned three more weeks

The criminal case against John Wendell Keyler for the murder of Sarah Foord was adjourned another three weeks in Fort St. John court today.

Keyler, 35, appeared by video on Oct. 19, where his lawyer Kelly Merrigan requested a three-week adjournment, and said they would be in a position to arraign his charges.

Keyler is charged with second-degree murder and indignity to human remains, and remains in custody until he makes an application for bail. He has not entered a plea, nor been found guilty of the charges.

Keyler was arrested and charged at the end off July after a two-week investigation into Foord's disappearance. Foord had been considered missing before her remains were found July 24 in a remote location 75 kilometres north of Fort St. John.

He will appear next on Nov. 9.
