A trial date has now been set for a Quesnel murder suspect.
53-year old Joseph Simpson is due back in Supreme Court on February 29th of next year.
Simpson is charged with murder and Interference with a dead body in connection with the death of 33-year old Carmelita Abraham.
She was reported missing by her family back on January 4th, 2022.
Investigators were able to determine that she had left Williams Lake for Quesnel about a week before that.
The North District Major Crimes Unit then took over the investigation on January 10th, when the case went from a missing persons investigation to a suspected homicide.
