Gobin to appear before a judge briefly today

The 18-year-old Orleans man accused of killing his mother last month is due back before a judge by video Wednesday afternoon as the courts continue to process his first-degree murder charges.

It is not likely anything will happen in court aside from setting another date for the young man to appear.

His lawyer has said they're still waiting for what they expect to be a "voluminous" disclosure of the facts of the case from the Crown.

Ottawa Police and paramedics were called to a St. Bruno Street home two weeks ago where they found Luce Lavertu dead, apparently of a slashing wound.

After a police chase they arrested her son, Christopher Gobin, on the front lawn of a neighbour's home.
