A judge has reserved his decision on whether a Saskatchewan farmer accused of fatally shooting a First Nations man should be granted bail.
Gerald Stanley is charged with second-degree murder in the Aug. 9 death of 22-year-old Colten Boushie of the Red Pheasant First Nation.
Stanley’s bail hearing in North Battleford today ended with the judge saying he will release a written decision on Friday or sometime next week.
All evidence presented at the hearing is subject to a publication ban.
Earlier in the day, Stanley appeared in provincial court where he pleaded not guilty.
Hundreds of people holding up signs and chanting “Justice for Colten” rallied peacefully outside while others came to quietly support Stanley.
