Two murder suspects from the North have both had their legal proceedings adjourned to next month.


19-year-old Quentin Gardiner of Ile-a-la-Crosse appeared in provincial court in the northern village yesterday.


Gardiner is charged with the second-degree murder of Robin Caisse, also of Ile-a-la-Crosse.


The 22-year-old victim died from a severe beating back on May 28th.


The judge presiding over the matter has adjourned the case until July 12th.


Gardiner has been remanded into custody.


Meanwhile, an 18-year-old member of the Montreal Lake Cree Nation will wait behind bars for another month.


The youth, who can’t be identified, is charged with killing three people on the reserve during an incident in March.


He appeared in Prince Albert Provincial Court yesterday, and also saw his case adjourned until July 12th.


That’s when he will tell the judge whether he wants to be tried by judge or jury.


The accused is currently on remand at an adult correctional facility.


Two men and a woman lost their lives on the morning of March 2nd when shooting broke out on the reserve.
