Oland Charged

November 14, 2013 by  

Oland Charged, Dennis Oland was charged with second-degree murder Wednesday afternoon in connection with the death of his father, prominent businessman Richard Oland, more than two years ago.

Oland, 45, made a brief appearance in Saint John provincial court for the charge to be laid. He was arrested on Tuesday afternoon.

No plea was entered. Nov. 19 was set aside to select a date for a preliminary inquiry, which will determine if there’s enough evidence to proceed to a trial.

Oland is expected to remain in custody until at least the Nov. 19 hearing. His defence lawyer, Gary Miller, did not raise the issue of a bail hearing and declined to comment following the proceedings.

Oland appeared tired and dishevelled sitting in the prisoner’s box after spending the night in lockup. He was wearing a baggy grey sweatshirt.

He looked straight ahead, but did glance over at some of his relatives who filled the first two rows, including his mother, Constance, and his wife, Lisa.

When asked by provincial court Judge Marco Cloutier if he understood the charge of second-degree murder, Oland nodded and quietly replied, “Yes, sir.”
