The decision of whether or not to proceed with the murder charges against Lucas Abel will be made later this month.
Lisa Winters is a Clerk for the Provincial Court in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
She says the decision will be announced by Judge John Joy on December 23, in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
At that time, Joy will decide if the matter will go before the Supreme Court of Canada.
He will be making his decision following a four-day preliminary inquiry into the matter.
The inquiry was held in Nain last week.
26-year-old Lucas Abel was charged with first-degree murder in January.
