ST. GEORGE'S, Grenada - Police in Grenada say a preliminary inquiry for a man charged with non-capital murder in the death of a New Brunswick woman will begin Feb. 1.
Const. Pauline Williams of the Royal Grenada Police Force in St. George's says Akim Frank was remanded to custody following a court appearance today.
The 26-year-old turned himself in on Dec. 11 after being wanted in connection with the disappearance of Linnea Veinotte, a mother of two young boys who was last seen jogging with her dog.
Police have said Veinotte's cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma to the chest and lower limbs as a result of being struck by a vehicle.
The 36-year-old woman had recently moved to the small Caribbean island with her family and was working as a learning specialist at St. George's University.
Williams says Frank is due back in court Jan. 19.
