It was with a stoic air that Martin Lévesque appeared by videoconference in front of the court on Saturday afternoon.
Sporting a hair and a shaggy beard, the accused did not flinch when judge Sébastien Proulx formally accused him of the unpremeditated murder of a 35-year-old woman from Saint-Raymond.
The man barely nodded when Judge Proulx informed him of the alleged offense. Lévesque will return to court on September 17 for further proceedings and will remain in custody until then.
Note that a publication ban was issued to protect the identity of the victim of the tragedy.
Obstruction and aggression
In addition, Guylaine Laflamme, who allegedly assaulted a police officer during the intervention of the Sûreté du Québec in Saint-Raymond, Friday evening, faces two counts.
He is accused in particular of having caused an assault against agent Guillaume Belleau-Boutin and of having deliberately hindered the police officer in the performance of his duties.
She will be held until her release investigation on Monday.
