17-year-old girl charged with second-degree murder of Allan Ashawasagai
The suspect, whose name cannot be released under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, appeared in Sudbury court June 26, via CCTV from the Near North Youth Centre in North Bay.
Her lawyer asked the case be adjourned for two weeks, due to the serious nature of the crime, and to give law enforcement time to collect more evidence.
The suspect was charged with second-degree murder, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and breach of probation after Ashawasagai was killed in a Bloor Street home on June 3, 2014.
