Accused Mountie shooter not present

KILLAM, Alta.—A man accused in the attempted murder of two Alberta RCMP officers was not present for his first court appearance today.
Sawyer Clarke Robison’s defence counsel did not appear, either, and sent another lawyer to the courthouse in Killam on his behalf.

The case was put over to April 3, at which time it’s expected Robison will apply for bail.
He is charged in the shooting of two Mounties at a farm near Killam on Feb. 7.
Robison was on the run for almost three days before he was arrested—his truck, an unloaded gun, and some ammunition were located later.
The Crown told court there probably will be more charges against Robison.
