The indication from his defence counsel was that an application may be made for bail for Wapass to the Court of Queen’s Bench before that time. Queen’s Bench holds jurisdiction for bail in this case. 

Wapass is charged in connection to the death of Roger Standingwater on Thunderchild First Nation on Sept. 15.
