FORT ST. JOHN, B.C – Court proceedings against Shane Sutherland for the murder of Amanda Black were adjourned to April 26th Monday morning, as lawyers continue to await disclosure materials.

Sutherland, 27, made a brief appearance by video in Fort St. John provincial court to consult with legal counsel. He was arrested in February after RCMP were called to the Village St John townhome complex on 102 Avenue where RCMP say Black was found deceased.

Police initially called the death suspicious and said the two knew each other, releasing limited details.

Sutherland is charged with second-degree murder, and has not yet entered a plea, or been found guilty. He remains in custody.

Black was 22, leaving behind a baby boy.
