Man accused in girl’s murder makes brief court appearance
The Iqaluit man accused of killing 13-year-old Jennifer Naglingniq last year made a brief court appearance in Iqaluit this week.
Mark King Jeffrey, 22, faces one count of first-degree murder in connection with the teen’s death.
On July 8, Jeffrey arrived in Iqaluit from Ottawa to set a date for a preliminary inquiry. However, lawyers for the Crown and Defence said they need more time before a date for the inquiry is set.
Jeffrey’s next court date is Sept. 9.
Naglingniq was found dead in her Iqaluit home on Dec. 6. Police have never said how the youth died.
