TRURO, N.S. – A Millbrook man accused of second-degree murder expressed annoyance during a court hearing on Tuesday at not being able to contact his mother.

Speaking via video link from his jail cell, Kevin Brian Sylliboy reiterated concerns stated during his previous court hearing at not being able to contact his family.

His mother is one of a number of people he is currently banned from communicating with.

“I’m just starting to get frustrated, right,” Sylliboy said. “This is an ongoing thing. They said it would be taken care of.”

Sylliboy, 25, is charged with second-degree murder in the death on Easter morning of Jamie Blair, 46, also of Millbrook.

Sylliboy discharged his Legal Aid lawyer just prior to his previous court hearing and a new solicitor has not been confirmed in the case.

Judge Al Bégin said the accused must be represented by legal counsel before any discussions can take place about having contact restrictions lifted.

During the June 12 hearing, Sylliboy is also to be sentenced on a previous break and enter conviction.

Grace Marie Scott, a co-accused in the murder case, is free on bail.
