Suspect In Bosse Murder Back In Court

The preliminary hearing for a man accused of killing an Aboriginal woman has been delayed.


This morning, Douglas Hales appeared before a provincial court judge in Saskatoon, asking for court-appointed council, which has been denied.


Hales had legal aid, but fired the lawyer, saying he didn’t think the lawyer was looking out for his best interests.


The judge gave Hales until next Monday to determine if he will be represented by himself, a private lawyer, or legal aid.


Hales is charged with the first-degree murder of Dahleen Bosse, as well as offering an indignity to a human body for allegedly setting her on fire.
