CORNER BROOK — There is still no decision from the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador on a voir dire heard this past fall in the matter of Herman Boyd Randell.

Randell, 43, is charged with the attempted murder of 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.

In October, Justice David Hurley heard evidence in relation to an application filed by the defence. A publication ban prohibits the reporting of evidence presented during the voir dire.

The case had been scheduled for arraignment in Supreme Court on Monday and it had been anticipated that Hurley would have filed his decision on the voir dire before that date.

When the matter was called Monday, it was set over for March 3, by which time Hurley is now expected to have his decision prepared.

Randell, who lives in Corner Brook, entered a not guilty plea in Supreme Court last March. However, no trial date has yet been set, as the outcome of the voir dire could possibly affect where the matter goes from there.
