An Eastern Passage woman accused of the first-degree murder of her former boyfriend briefly appeared in a provincial courtroom Thursday.
Amanda Greene, 18, was in the Shubenacadie provincial court for just a few minutes.
She is scheduled to re-appear in court on Nov. 25 for election and/or plea over the death of Dillon Jewett.
Jewett, a Dartmouth man who worked as a furniture mover, was found dead near the East Uniacke Quarry on Oct. 3. He had been shot to death.
Greene, who graduated from Cole Harbour High School, is a first-year Dalhousie University student.
Greene was charged with Jewett’s murder over the weekend after police arrested her at a service station in Eastern Passage.
RCMP have said a firearm was used to kill Jewett, but wouldn’t say how many times he was shot.
Greene’s Facebook page lists Jewett as a friend and Greene’s most recent status update was a tribute to the Dartmouth man.
“I can’t believe you’re really gone, but I now know I have an angel in heaven watching down below. I love you and always will R.I.P. Dillon,” read the Oct. 7 post.
