A lengthy psychological report is the reason behind another delay in sentencing for the man who pleaded guilty to the attack on Marlene Bird.
In June of 2014, Bird was left with life-altering injuries after she was burnt and cut in downtown Prince Albert. She needed skin graft and had both legs amputated as a result.
Later that month, Leslie Ivan Roderick Black was arrested and faced multiple charges, including attempted murder.
He entered a guilty plea for that offence in April of this year, and a psychiatric assessment was ordered.
The detailed result of that assessment came out in a report this week, said Crown prosecutor Keith Amyotte.
In reviewing that report, there is a possibility that the Crown will seek a dangerous offender designation for Black.
Black has been in custody throughout the court process, and rarely appeared in person. Thursday’s court date in Prince Albert was no exception.
When asked how long it could be before Black is sentenced, the Crown couldn’t provide specifics.
Black’s case is scheduled to return to Prince Albert Provincial Court on Aug. 11.
