FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Amanda Black murder case was again adjourned in Fort St. John court on Monday.

The accused, Shane Sutherland, appeared in court by video and was told he’d be returning on October 18th as a preliminary inquiry has yet to be set.

During a preliminary inquiry, the court will decide if there is enough evidence to convict the accused.

Police arrived at a home in Village St John, finding Amanda Black, 22, dead around 7:30 p.m. on February 8th.

RCMP originally deemed the death suspicious and said the two individuals knew each other.

Sutherland is charged with second-degree murder and remains in custody. He has not been found guilty of the charge.
