Nathaniel Veltman, 20, faces four counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted murder as well as terrorism charges in connection with the June 6 attack on the Afzaal family along Hyde Park Road.

Four members of the family died when they were run down while out for an evening walk.

During Thursday's court appearance, the court heard that Veltman's lawyer Christopher Hicks had received disclosure from the Crown in the case and has requested four weeks to review it.

Veltman will remain in custody at the Elgin Middlesex Detention Centre.

His next scheduled court appearance is Aug. 25.
