Accused in Millbrook murder case closer to finding lawyer

The case of a Millbrook man charged with second-degree murder has been delayed for another month as he works out his legal representation.

Twenty-five-year-old Kevin Brian Sylliboy appeared via video in Truro Provincial Court on Tuesday where he said Ken Greer, a Legal Aid lawyer in Kentville, was working out if he could take over as defence counsel.

Amherst Legal Aid lawyer Stephanie Hillson was discharged as counsel last month.

Sylliboy is charged in connection with the death of a 46-year-old Millbrook man in April, and again asked the court today about varying a no contact order so he could call his mother and find out how his family is doing.

Judge Al Bégin denied the request, saying his lawyer could bring the matter before the court quickly once retained.

Sylliboy is due back in court on June 12th, at which point he's also scheduled to be sentenced in relation to a break and enter charge from a separate matter.

Thirty-five-year-old Grace Marie Scott is charged with being an accessory after the fact in the second-degree murder case.
