Another Delay In Case Of Rooming House Death

The date has, yet again, been pushed forward in the case of a local man charged in the death of 66 year-old Duncan MacDonald. 

35 year-old Nicholas Logan and MacDonald were living at a rooming house on the corner of Duke and Prince William, where MacDonald was seriously injured in an incident on March 16. He died in hospital on April 10. 

Logan has undergone mental assessments in Restigouche and received a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia, suggesting he won't be held criminally responsible for his actions. When Logan appeared in mid-June, the case was delayed, as the court was awaiting forensic evidence before it could proceed.

He will be back in court on August 13.
