The two young men facing charges from last month’s cross-burning incident outside of Windsor saw their court appearance to enter a plea yesterday held over until Friday.

Their lawyers said they needed more time to get disclosure of evidence from the Crown.

Nathan Rehberg, 20, and his 19-year-old brother Justin each face charges of criminal harassment, mischief, uttering threats and public incitement of hatred in relation to a cross-burning incident on Feb. 21.

Shayne Howe, who is black, and his fiancée, Michelle Lyons, who is white, say they looked out their window in Newport, Hants Co., and saw a burning cross on their front lawn with a noose on it. When Howe investigated, he alleged racial slurs were hurled at him.
