A 51-year-old woman who allegedly stabbed a man in Murray River will stay in custody until at least Friday after a show cause hearing this morning in Charlottetown.

Christine Louise Prozeniuk appeared before justice of the peace Charles Thompson to determine if she should remain in custody until her case is dealt with through the courts.

But instead of hearing legal arguments from both sides, Thompson adjourned the matter until Friday after the defence asked for more time to review evidence.

Defence lawyer Mitch MacLeod said he hadn’t had enough time to review the disclosure before the hearing.

MacLeod asked to have Prozeniuk remain in custody by consent until Friday and Thompson agreed.

The RCMP arrested Prozeniuk in Moncton Saturday after she allegedly stabbed a man at his mother’s home in Murray River.

Prozeniuk had boarded an airplane for Toronto but was arrested before it left the airport.
