An Edmonton man’s murder trial was adjourned before it began on Monday after his defence counsel fell ill.
Ahmadou Mbaye was scheduled to begin his 19-day, judge-alone trial Monday morning. He was charged in 2018 with second-degree murder for the death of his estranged partner, 33-year-old Bigue Ndao.
On May 7, 2018, police responded to a weapons call at an apartment suite in the neighbourhood of Strathearn. There they discovered Ndao’s body and an autopsy later determined she died of stab wounds.
Mbaye’s in-person trial was adjourned until Friday by Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Adam Germain in order to discuss whether the trial will continue next Monday or if a later date needs to be scheduled. That discussion will take place over video conferencing.
