The accused in Sunday's deadly attack on a Muslim family in London, Ont. made his first court appearance Thursday.

Veltman says he's still in the process of retaining a lawyer.

Relatives have identified the dead as 46-year-old Salman Afzaal, his 44-year-old wife Madiha Salman, their 15-year-old daughter Yumna Salman and her 74-year-old grandmother, Talat Afzaal.

The couple's nine-year-old son, Fayez, was seriously wounded but is expected to recover.
