HALIFAX - The case of a 23-year-old medical student charged with the murder of a fellow Dalhousie University student in Halifax is due in court today.
The lawyers involved will hold a focus hearing to discuss how many witnesses to call.
William Sandeson is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 22-year-old Taylor Samson, a physics student at Dalhousie whose body has never been found.
The defence and Crown agreed last week to extend the preliminary hearing to eight days from six in February to determine if there's enough evidence to warrant a trial.
Sandeson was charged on Aug. 20, four days after Samson was reported missing in Halifax.
Police have said the two men knew each other.
