Two women charged in the murder of Jason Skinner had appearances in Grand Falls-Windsor Provincial Court this past week. Wanda Ash, 34, and Pamela Pike. 31. Both had their lawyers speak on their behalf and set the cases over. Both lawyers said they needed more time to prepare for bail applications and to go through the evidence provided by the crown.
Pike's lawyer, Bob Buckingham, set his clients case over until Aug. 26, while Ash is scheduled to return on July 29.
Both woman are ordered to remain in custody until a bail hearing takes place. The incident that lead to the charges occurred on April 18, when police responded to a call to a home in Grand Falls-Windsor and found 34-year-old Jason Skinner seriously injured; he was transported to the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Care Centre, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
According to previous court records, both of the accused have lived in Grand Falls-Windsor, although their most recent homicide charges have them listed as having no fixed address.
Earlier this month Pike was also sentenced to 45 days in jail after she was convicted of theft and breaching her probation.
