A North Thompson woman accused of murdering her husband last month in a rural area near Vavenby will remain in jail while awaiting trial.
Ashleigh Tschritter, 31, is charged with second-degree murder in connection with the Sept. 6 death of her husband, David Simpson.
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 and Simpson had been living in Clearwater.
Following a bail hearing earlier this month, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sheri Donegan ordered Tschritter to remain behind bars pending her trial.
Reasons for Donegan’s decision, as well as the circumstances of the case against Tschritter, are protected by a court-ordered ban on publication.
Tschritter is slated to appear in court on Nov. 9, when she is expected to elect whether she wants to be tried by a judge alone or by a B.C. Supreme Court jury.
