Dillon Peeace’s attempted murder case was adjourned until May 9 as the defence and provincial Crown prosecutor could be close to a resolution. 

Legal Aid lawyer Suzanne Lalonde appeared on behalf of Peeace’s lawyer Brian Pfefferle during Moose Jaw Provincial Court on Wednesday. 

Lalonde was told that Pfefferle needed a very brief adjournment to finalize instructions for a resolution with his client. Lalonde said the adjournment date was at the Crown prosecutor’s convenience. 

Provincial Crown prosecutor Rob Parker set a date for May 9. However, Parker told the court he had not received a sentencing proposal from Pfefferle to resolve the case as a joint proposal.  

Parker said he would reach out to Pfefferle to try and get the case resolved as it is becoming dated. Peeace’s case has been adjourned over 25 times. 

Peeace was charged with attempted murder following an alleged machete attack in downtown Moose Jaw on Sept. 28. He is also facing several outstanding charges including breach of an undertaking, causing a disturbance, resisting arrest and breaking and entering.
