Prosecutors have charged a man from the community of Clearwater, with first-degree murder after the death of his common-law spouse.
Iain Scott was not in court on Wednesday but his lawyer and Crown counsel set June 2 as the date of his next court appearance.
On Monday, 33-year-old Angila Wilson was found dead in her Clearwater home.
A seven hour standoff followed outside another local home, and police confirmed a man was taken into custody later that afternoon.
They also said three children related to the case were located in the man's residence when he was arrested, and they were not physically harmed during the incident.
