A Vernon man facing second degree murder charges, plans to seek bail.
21 year old Angelo Monfort is charged in the death of a 49 year old woman — believed to be his mother — on June 20 at a residence in the 7300 block of Okanagan Landing Road.
Police say the woman was assaulted, and died of her injuries later in hospital.
Monfort was arrested in the home.
He has been in custody since that night.
His lawyer, Paul Danyliu, told a BC Supreme Court judge Monday they are still waiting for disclosure (case information) from the Crown, but plan to seek bail.
Justice Gary Weatherill set a bail hearing for August 8.
