Herman Boyd Randell enters the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador in Corner Brook Tuesday morning.
CORNER BROOK All of the evidence has been presented in a pre-trial voir dire in the attempted murder charge against Herman Boyd Randell in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Randell, 43, is accused of trying to kill a woman in Englee in November 2010. He was charged more than 15 months after the woman was seriously injured in an overnight attack at her home.
Randell, who lives in Corner Brook, entered a not guilty plea in Supreme Court this past March. However, no trial date has yet been set.
A voir dire regarding certain aspects of the case brought forth in an application by defence lawyer Peter Chaffey was argued before Justice David Hurley for two days in Corner Brook this week. The presentation of evidence concluded Wednesday afternoon.
The matter has now been adjourned until Tuesday when Chaffey and Crown attorney Ed Ring will sum up their legal arguments on the voir dire.
A publication ban prevents the reporting of the nature of the evidence presented during the voir dire.
