Case of man charged with threat due in court

By The Canadian Press

MONCTON, N.B. - A bail hearing is scheduled today for a man charged in Moncton, New Brunswick with uttering a threat to cause death to peace officers.

Jasper John Stam was charged June 9th with uttering a threat in rthe city between May 10th and 18th.

His lawyer, Jean Cormier, says his 24-year-old client was found fit to stand trial following a five-day psychiatric assessment.

Stam has been ordered to have no contact with the accused in the shooting deaths of three RCMP officers in Moncton.

RCMP have said the charge against Stam is not linked to their investigation into the fatal shootings of Constables Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, Douglas James Larche and Dave Joseph Ross on June 4th.

Justin Bourque is charged with three counts of first-degree murder in those deaths. He is also charged with two counts of attempted murder after two other officers were hurt in the shootings.
