Accused murderer Kenneth Edward Green has applied for bail.
Green, 34, who is in custody, wasn't in court when his case was called in provincial court in St. John's today. He was represented by his lawyer Randy Piercey.
Piercey told Judge Robert Hyslop that Green's bail hearing is set for June 6 at Newfoundland Supreme Court.
Hyslop and Crown prosecutor Robin Fowler agreed to postpone the case until after the bail hearing decision.
The case will be back in provincial court June 13.
Green is charged with second-degree murder in the slaying of Joseph Whalen on Tessier Place in St. John’s a few months ago.
Joseph (Joey) Patrick Whalen, 47, died in hospital on March 17 from injuries sustained four days earlier at a house on Tessier Place. A day after his death, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary arrested Green.
