Loretta Saunders case put over to April 22Blake Leggette, 25, is escorted into Halifax provincial court on February 28, 2014 in Halifax, N.S. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Mike Dembeck

HALIFAX - The case of two people charged in the death of Loretta Saunders was put over Wednesday in Halifax to April 22 to set dates for a preliminary hearing.

First-degree murder charges have been laid against 25-year-old Blake Leggette and his 28-year-old girlfriend, Victoria Henneberry.

Neither of the accused appeared in court Wednesday.

Saunders disappeared from Halifax on Feb. 13.

Her body was found nearly two weeks later off the Trans-Canada Highway in New Brunswick.

Police allege the 26-year-old woman was killed the day she was last seen at an apartment she once shared with the two accused.

Saunders, an Inuit woman from Labrador, was a student at Saint Mary's University in Halifax whose studies were focused on missing and murdered aboriginal women.
