The woman charged in the March 8 alleged murder of a 47-year-old man in Marysville had a second brief court appearance on Monday.

Claudia De Assumpcao has been charged with second degree murder and arson over the death of Jordon Lenard Lomsnes earlier this month.

According to RCMP, De Assumpcao, 37, was Lomsnes’s girlfriend and they lived together for a year before his death.

On Monday, March 18, De Assumpcao appeared before Judge Grant Sheard via video link from Alouette Correctional Centre for Women in Maple Ridge.

De Assumpcao was remanded in custody until her lawyer is able to contact her to discuss a bail hearing.

Her next court appearance will be on April 15 in Cranbrook, at which time a date is likely to be set for a bail hearing in Cranbrook Supreme Court.
