A woman facing first degree murder charges in central Newfoundland will not be seeking a bail application, according to her lawyer.
Pamela Pike was not in court for her Monday afternoon appearance but lawyer Bob Buckingham represented her over the phone system. He said they were not prepared to submit a bail application and had no plans to submit one.
They also needed more time to look over other pretrial applications, Buckingham said.
Pike, 32, and co-accused Wanda Ash, 34 have been in police custody since April when they were charged with the first-degree murder of Harbour Round
native Jason Skinner.
Skinner was found critically injured in a Grand Falls-Windsor residence, operated by a local homelessness network. He later died in hospital.
Skinner's family has stated that he had been accepted into a rehab facility and was staying in Grand Falls-Windsor while waiting to enter rehab when he was murdered.
Pike's next appearance is set for Sept. 18, and Ash is scheduled to appear on Sept. 12 for a bail hearing.
