Murder suspects appear in Red Deer court

Both suspects in Red Deer’s first murder of 2011 made a brief appearance in provincial court on Tuesday.

Martin Munro, 36, of Miramichi, New Brunswick and Jolyn Ten Hove, 37, of Red Deer, have been charged with second-degree murder in the death of George William McDonald, 40.

Red Deer lawyer Brad Mulder, who was appearing as agent for Ten Hove, said his office is currently waiting for disclosure and could not proceed further until that information is received.

Ten Hove will appear in Red Deer provincial court on Feb. 9.

Munro, who also appeared in court Tuesday, was represented by Legal Aid Society of Alberta lawyer Murray Shack.

Shack told the court that Munro is currently waiting for a lawyer to be appointed for him.

His case was also held over until Feb. 9.

Both suspects were remanded until their next appearance.

On Jan. 20, at about 2:49 a.m. Red Deer city RCMP and Red Deer Emergency Services were dispatched to 2 Forest Cl. following a 911 call.

Police say it’s alleged a physical altercation took place between two men in the residence.

McDonald, 40, originally from Miramichi, New Brunswick, was found dead upon police arrival. An autopsy concluded he died after being strangled.
