Quebec — A man accused of killing two people in a puncture wound attack on Halloween night in Quebec City appeared in court today through a video conference from a camp clinic.

No reason was given in court to explain why 25-year-old Carl Girouard was in a prison in Quebec City.

Girouard, from Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec, was charged with two once-murders and five attempted murders after a man in a medieval costume wielding a Japanese-style sword rampaged on October 31st last year. It was. Quebec City’s historic center.

Two residents, 56-year-old Francois Duchesne and 61-year-old Suzanne Clermont, were killed and five others were seriously injured.

Girouard lawyer Pierre Gagnon told the court today that more time is needed to review the evidence against the client.

The case will return to court in Quebec City on June 18.
