Security was unusually tight at the Brandon courthouse today as the man charged with second-degree murder in the death of Duane Lacquette made a brief court appearance.

Visitors to the courthouse had to walk through a metal detector, police were stationed outside the building and the accused, Jason John Ouimet, who is out on bail, apparently entered and exited the courthouse through a back or side door.

The security measures have frustrated members of Lacquette's family who have tried to snap a photo of Ouimet to distribute to media. About 30 of Lacquette's family and friends attended court today to witness Ouimet's appearance.

The body of Duane Lacquette, 21, was found in his residence on Centennial Boulevard on Jan. 16. Police later said he died of blunt force injuries.

Ouimet, 28, a gunner posted at CFB Shilo with the 1st Regiment Royal Canadian Horse Artillery, was arrested on Feb. 4 but later released on bail to live at the base. His next court appearance is due May 13.
