A Kamloops man charged with murder and multiple counts of attempted murder after a stabbing spree at a house party in March will remain in jail until at least next month.
Michael Wayne Palmer has been in custody since his arrest in the early-morning hours of March 29, hours after John Rene Kevin White was stabbed to death.
Three other men were stabbed, as well — a pair of brothers, ages 62 and 58, and a 21-year-old man.
Palmer, 43, is charged with one count of second-degree murder and three counts of attempted murder.
Emergency crews were called to an apartment building on Carson Crescent in North Kamloops at about 11:30 p.m. on March 28 for a report of four people having been stabbed. White died at the scene.
Police have said neither Palmer nor the victims are well-known to investigators. Mounties have seized the weapon they believe was used by Palmer.
Palmer is scheduled to make his next appearance in court on May 6.
