The man accused of killing Deborah Irene Yorke is due back in Dartmouth provincial court next month.

Brandon Jake Hollohan, 23, appeared briefly in Dartmouth provincial court on Tuesday via a video feed. He is charged with second-degree murder.

The hearing lasted only a few minutes to set his next court date. He’s scheduled to reappear March 23 at 9:30 a.m. and remains in custody until then. At that time, he will be there in person unless an application for a video appearance is made and approved.

Yorke was found just after 4 a.m. on Jan. 21 when police were called to 3 Farthington Pl. in Dartmouth. She died at the scene.

Hollohan was arrested on Jan. 25 and appeared in court on Jan. 29.

Halifax Regional Police have said that Hollohan and Yorke were acquaintances, but did not give details.
