Two charged in Millbrook homicide appear in Truro Provincial Court

The two people charged in the death of a 46-year-old Millbrook man on Sunday each made brief appearances in Truro Provincial Court on Tuesday before being remanded back into custody.

Twenty-five-year-old Kevin Brian Sylliboy from Millbrook faces one count of second-degree murder, while 35-year-old Grace Marie Scott from Truro is charged with being an accessory after the fact.

Lawyer Stephanie Hilson told the court that Sylliboy indicated he hadn't received medication for mental health issues since being taken into custody.

At her request, Judge Al Begin said he would sign a warrant of remand and committal for mental health counsel and access to medication.

Hilson also asked that the court consider transferring Sylliboy to the Central Nova Scotia Correctional Facility in Burnside, where she said he had been able to access needed medication in the past.

Sylliboy's next court appearance is scheduled for April 10th.

Legal Aid lawyer David Mahoney appeared with Scott as duty-counsel only, saying a conflict of interest in his office meant he couldn't represent her.

He indicated Sarah White from Halifax would be doing so for Scott's next court appearance, which is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

As part of their remand conditions, each have nearly a dozen people they are not to be in contact with.
