Defence awaiting evidence in deadly random beating
A 38-year-old man will have to wait a little longer to find out the next step in his case in connection with the deadly random beating in July of a 67-year-old woman in downtown Montreal.
Jason Derrald Sivret didn't say a word during his brief court appearance this morning. His case returns to court in December. Sivret remains detained until then.
"The disclosure is not complete," defence lawyer Elfriede Duclervil told reporters.
Sivret is charged with second degree murder in the beating death of Yuk Ngor Tam. She was crossing the street at Ste Catherine and St. Laurent late at night when she was attacked at random and brutally beaten and kicked. She died of her injuries a few hours later in hospital.
Sivret is also charged with two counts of assault in connection with that night. Police at the time say Sivret was kicked out of a strip club in the area for being too aggressive and then took his anger out on passersby and motorists.
