The latest suspect arrested in the Tiki Laverdiere murder investigation made her first court appearance Monday in provincial court in North Battleford.

It was a brief court appearance for Cook Monday. She has been remanded to her next court appearance Sept. 13 at 11:30 a.m. by closed-circuit TV. A no-contact order was also made preventing Cook from contacting several individuals; those names are covered by a publication ban.  

Once again, family and supporters of Laverdiere were in attendance at provincial court.

Cook was arrested last week in Edmonton after being wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in the case. To date, eight individuals have been arrested and charged and the investigation is continuing.
