FORT ST. JOHN, B.C – The criminal case against John Wendell Keyler for the murder of Sarah Foord was adjourned for three weeks Monday morning as Keyler searches for a new lawyer.

The matter is expected to proceed to jury trial once Keyler retains new counsel, with a date still to be set.

The decision for trial was made March 10 following a preliminary inquiry, with sufficient evidence found to try for a conviction.

Keyler is charged with second-degree murder and has not been found guilty of the charge.
