A court hearing for Matthew de Grood, the 22-year-old charged with five counts of first-degree murder in the stabbings of five young people at a house party in Calgary in April, is scheduled for today.
Allan Fay, de Grood’s defence lawyer, said he will seek a date for a preliminary hearing when he appears in the Calgary court on Tuesday.
It's uncertain if de Grood will be in court, or just make an appearance via closed-circuit television, which happened in his last court hearing.
De Grood is accused in the fatal stabbings of:
- Lawrence Hong, 27.
- Joshua Hunter, 23.
- Kaitlin Perras, 23.
- Zackariah Rathwell, 21.
- Jordan Segura, 22.
The five were attacked at an end-of-semester party in Brentwood near the University of Calgary campus on April 15.
At his last hearing, de Grood was found fit to stand trial after he underwent a 30-day mental health assessment at the Southern Alberta Forensic Psychiatry Centre, where he is still being held.
39-year-old Jason Collett was found dead at a Last Door recovery house in New Westminster late Tuesday afternoon
