An accused man in a triple-homicide case had his case adjourned for another two weeks on Wednesday.

Nathaniel Carrier is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, and one count of attempted murder.

The victims in this case are Carrier’s parents, Denis Carrier and Sandra Henry, and 7-year-old son, Bentlee. Carrier’s 5-year-old daughter, Kendrah, was seriously injured in the incident but survived.

In court on Wednesday morning, the case was adjourned again until Feb. 1 at 10 a.m.

Carrier had his attendance waived and was not present in court on Wednesday.

Defence lawyer Terra-Lennox Zepp asked to have the case adjourned to deal with procedural questions with the crown.

Judge Schiefner asked Lennox-Zepp if she had spoken to her client about continuously delaying the case as the charges are coming up on almost a year.

“We have generally (had those conversations),” Lennox-Zepp responded.
