Posted July 11, 2018 06:07:48 Canada’s immigration lawyer says a man with autism has been granted bail and is expected to appear in court again on Aug. 7.
Daniel Dejmovic was granted bail on Monday, his lawyer, Andrew Strahl, said in an email.
The case has been referred to the Canadian Judicial Council, where the man is alleged to have been abusing his powers to harass his ex-wife and daughter, Strahling said.
The alleged offences occurred in March, April and May.
Dejminovic is expected in court in Hamilton on Wednesday to face a number of charges, including assault, sexual assault, uttering threats, criminal harassment, utterance threats and interference with a peace officer.
He will remain in custody until he appears in court, Strakl said.
DeJmovic, who has lived in the Hamilton area for the past seven years, is expected on bail.
The family of the woman, who was killed, had been trying to get the man to leave Canada.
Dejanovic is alleged by the Crown to have killed his wife and two of his children, aged 14 and 13, by setting fire to their house in July 2018.
He is charged with murder and three counts of attempted murder.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges at his first appearance in a Hamilton court in January.
The man has no previous convictions.
