The 41-year-old man facing second-degree murder charges relating to the death of 23-year-old Courtenay resident Kevin Burns will make his next appearance by video Oct. 29.

Shane Stanford appeared by video in a Courtenay courtroom Thursday morning for the incident which occurred Aug. 11 around 10:30 p.m. in downtown Courtenay.

Crown counsel noted there is a lot of disclosure (copy of the evidence) outstanding, and suggest to fix a focus hearing for the murder charge.

A focus hearing is generally held before a preliminary inquiry with the goal of clarifying what will and won’t be done at a preliminary inquiry.

Stanford, who is known to police with at least four other files from this year including assault of a peace officer and possession of stolen property, will appear by video.

He has entered not guilty pleas for all charges.
