Gavel

An Acadian Peninsula man who pleaded guilty to attempted murder will have to wait until next month to learn his sentence.

49-year-old David Chiasson was arrested after police discovered a woman with serious injuries at a residence on Saint Paul Street in Bas-Caraquet back in April.

Chiasson was found fit to stand trial following a psychiatric assessment.

His sentencing hearing is scheduled for November 8th.

A court-ordered publication ban is in place to protect the identity of the victim.
