Abel Preliminary Inquiry Decision to be made Later this Month

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.
