HALIFAX — The case of a 22-year-old Dalhousie University student charged with first-degree murder in the death of a fellow student is due in court today.

It’s expected dates for a preliminary inquiry will be set in provincial court in the case against William Sandeson.

Sandeson was charged on Aug. 20, four days after Taylor Samson was reported missing in Halifax.

His body has not been found.

Sandeson’s lawyer Eugene Tan says his client will seek bail in hearings on Oct. 21 and Oct. 22.

A search warrant document obtained by media outlets alleges that Samson was involved in a drug deal involving marijuana before his death.
