Police have said Simpson was found dead by officers responding to a 911 call in a remote area off Adams Forest Service Road, a route that circles Adams Lake, southeast of Clearwater.

Tschritter was arrested and charged a short time later. 

Crown prosecutor Neil Wiberg outlined the case against Tschritter in Kamloops Law Courts on Wednesday (Oct. 14) during her bail hearing. The alleged circumstances are protected by a court-ordered ban on publication.

Wiberg opposed Tschritter’s release.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sheri Donegan is expected to deliver a decision on the matter on Friday, Oct. 16.
