HALIFAX – The case of two people charged in the death of Loretta Saunders is due in court Tuesday to set dates for a preliminary hearing.
Twenty-five-year-old Blake Leggette and his 28-year-old girlfriend, Victoria Henneberry, are charged with first-degree murder.
Saunders disappeared from Halifax on Feb. 13.
Her body was found nearly two weeks later off the Trans-Canada Highway in New Brunswick.
Police allege the 26-year-old woman was killed the day she was last seen at an apartment she once shared with the two accused.
Saunders, an Inuit woman from Labrador, was a student at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax where her studies focused on missing and murdered aboriginal women.
