A man charged with second-degree murder will remain in custody as he awaits his trial scheduled for early next year.
Cameron Douglas Burnett, 52, was denied bail during a hearing in Brandon Court of Queen's Bench on Wednesday afternoon.
Burnett is charged in the Nov. 1, 2011 death of 37-year-old Crystal Elk who was stabbed in the alley behind the 300-block of Dennis Street.
He's been in custody since, and hadn't applied for bail until Wednesday. The bail application followed a voir dire — a hearing held to test the admissability of certain evidence — held earlier this week.
Justice John Menzies denied Burnett's release and he remains in custody while waiting for his judge and jury trial scheduled for January 2014.
