NEW GLASGOW — A preliminary inquiry will begin in the spring for a New Glasgow man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend.
Matthew Craig Anderson is charged with second-degree murder in the death last year of Jamie Lynn Walsh.
He’s remanded until the preliminary begins May 27.
Craig Clarke, Anderson’s lawyer, says the case has been delayed by a backlog of material at the Halifax RCMP forensics lab.
Walsh’s mother sat in the front row for Anderson’s court appearance Thursday.
Susan Walsh says she wants to be present for the preliminary as well because she doesn’t want to hear about it second-hand the way she heard about her daughter’s death.
