NORTH BATTLEFORD – The Crown wants a second psychiatric assessment done on a 45-year-old man accused of killing his 72-year-old mother.

Defence lawyer Bill Archer told North Battleford Provincial Court Thursday that the Crown wants a second psychiatric opinion on Walter Geering who is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Beatrice Geering.

Judge Ian Mokuruk agreed to Crown Prosecutor Kofi Nkruman-Young’s request for an adjournment to Dec. 15.

Geering’s attendance in court was waived and he was remanded in custody by law.

Just before noon on June 22, Battlefords RCMP had responded to a report of an injured person at a home in the 1500 block of 93 Street in North Battleford. Beatrice Geering was declared deceased at the home.

Two days later, RCMP charged her son Walter Geering with second-degree murder.
