The woman accused in the stabbing death of a 28 year old newly wed in the city’s PATH system last December, appeared in court at Old City Hall on Monday via video link.
Rohinie Bisesar, who is facing a charge of first degree murder following the death of Rosemarie Junor at a Shoppers Drug Mart near Bay and Wellington went on a rant about terrorism during the appearance saying that she had ”security concerns” and calling for the office of the Prime Minister to be notified and an ”anti-terrorist plan to be implemented.”
Bisesar had initially been charged with second degree murder following the December 11th attack, however the charges were later upgraded to first degree murder.
During the hearing the Crown expressed concern with how slowly the case is progressing, pointing out that the defence has not requested a bail hearing or a judicial pre-trial to get a date for a preliminary hearing set.
It’s also still not clear clear if a psychiatric assessment will be requested.
Bisesar will appear in court again on Wednesday.
