A 56-year-old Cornwall man charged with impaired driving causing death has had his case adjourned until next month.
Stephen Michael Quinn is expected to enter a plea on Oct. 9 in the Supreme Court of Prince Edward Island, his lawyer told the court Tuesday.
Quinn, who earlier waived his right to a preliminary inquiry, was charged in June in relation to a fatal motor vehicle collision on March 5 on the Trans-Canada Highway that killed 36-year-old Melissa Ann Palmer.
The victim was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and then transported to Halifax. She died in Halifax from her injuries.
Quinn was allegedly driving a MacInnis Express van when it collided with Palmer's vehicle.
Quinn is charged with impaired driving causing death while his blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit, and impaired driving causing death.
