A Fort Liard woman, charged with second degree murder in connection with the death of a man, is to have a bail hearing in court in Yellowknife on Monday.
Selena Loman, 21, was charged last October after the death of 34-year old Danny Klondike in Fort Liard in what police described as a domestic incident.
She appeared in court this past Monday.
The Crown prosecutor in the case says he will oppose Lomen’s bail although he did not indicate why he is taking the position.
Her lawyer told the court that the two people who are planning to put their names forth as bail sureties live in Fort Nelson B.C., not far from Fort Liard.
That may pose a problem because often accused murderers are not allowed to leave the territory before their trial.
Lomen has chosen to be tried by a judge and jury.
It has not been revealed how Klondike died but community members told CKLB at the time of his death that he had been stabbed.
A preliminary hearing for Lomen is to begin on June 10 in court in Hay River and then move to court in Fort Liard.
Preliminary hearings are held to determine if there in enough evidence to send the case to trial.
