Stabbing suspect faces attempted murder charge
Stabbing suspect Terri-Lynn Thomas has been scheduled to appear in Duncan criminal court May 8 to enter a plea on charges of the attempted murder.
Thomas was not in court for her second appearance Tuesday, March 20.
However, an agent for lawyer Scott Sheets requested Judge Shannon Cole to allow a four-week adjournment on proceedings.
Thomas, 43, of Duncan, was released from custody earlier this month and must follow a list of conditions set out by the court.
At last report, Duncanite Leon Jack, 48, was still in Victoria hospital in stable condition after the alleged stabbing.
Thomas is suspected of stabbing Jack on March 6 near Duncan's black bridge, a popular swimming and drinking spot, at around 4:15 p.m.
Police later recovered a carving-type knife from the Cowichan River near the alleged crime scene.
Mounties reached the shore March 6 and found a male who'd suffered multiple stab wounds to the chest and abdomen.
A female suspect was located near the scene and arrested for aggravated assault with a weapon.
