Man accused of murdering father appears in court

A man accused of killing his father made a court appearance in Red Deer provincial court Tuesday morning.

Aaron Guilbault, 31, has been charged with second-degree murder in connection to the death of his father Timothy Guilbault, 58.

Timothy, a former Red Deer City councillor from 1986 to 1995 and Calgary businessman was found dead at his cottage in Red Lodge Estates near Innisfail on Nov. 5. His daughter Caroline reportedly found him in the home as she was going to tell him about his mother’s failing health. Timothy’s mother died later that day.

Aaron appeared by CCTV from the Calgary Remand Centre. His lawyer, Patricia MacNaughton of Red Deer, spoke in court on his behalf.

She expressed concern that Guilbault was being housed in Calgary.

“I have just been in contact with my client,” she said, asking for a judge’s order that he return to the Red Deer Remand Centre so that she can have access to him.

The judge said he was unsure if he was able to order that but could make sure Aaron was brought to Red Deer for his next court appearance.

Police said that on Nov. 5th, 2012 shortly after 12 p.m., a family member found the body of Timothy. Innisfail RCMP Detachment was contacted and a homicide investigation initiated with the support of the Red Deer Major Crime Unit, Forensic Identification Section and other support units.

Aaron was arrested in his father’s vehicle near Stettler a few hours after Timothy’s body was discovered, RCMP have said.

Aaron will return to court Jan. 30th. He will appear in person on this date.
