Stabbing suspect Thomas has plea date rescheduled
Attempted-murder suspect Terri-Lynn Thomas was rescheduled Tuesday to enter a plea in Duncan Law Courts on May 29 concerning the stabbing case of Leon Jack.
Valley resident Thomas, 43, was represented yesterday in court by lawyer Scott Sheets before Justice of the Peace Cole.
A ban on publication prevents court details of Thomas' case from being released publicly.
She was arrested — with two other females — by North Cowichan /Duncan RCMP March 6 after local man Jack, 48, was stabbed multiple times in the chest and abdomen beside the Cowichan River's black bridge, police have said.
The two other women were later released.
A suspected carving-type weapon was later found in the river by Mountie divers, the RCMP said.
Thomas is charged with an attempt to commit murderer.
She's been released on bail but must follow 13 conditions of her bail, court staff said Tuesday.
It's believed Jack continues recovering from his wounds after treatment in Victoria General Hospital.
