Marysville murder trial moves to Supreme Court

Woman charged with murder over Marysville incident will be tried by a Supreme Court justice in Cranbrook

  • Nov. 19, 2013 11:00 a.m.

A Marysville murder case will be heard in Cranbrook Supreme Court before a judge alone.

Claudia de Assumpcao, 37, is charged with murder and arson over the March 8 death of Jordon Lenard Lomsnes.

On Monday, November 18, de Assumpcao’s legal counsel, Buffy Blakley, told Judge Grant Sheard that her client wants her case heard by a judge alone, instead of judge and jury, in Cranbrook Supreme Court.

The case has been referred from Provincial Court to Supreme Court, next to appear on Jan. 13.

In the meantime, De Assumpcao remains in custody. She did not appear via video for the brief court hearing on  Monday.

Charges of second-degree murder and arson in relation to inhabited property were laid against De Assumpcao after the suspicious death of Lomsnes, 47, at a Marysville residence in March.
