Woman charged in Picton Avenue standoff to appear in court in May

·1 min read

THUNDER BAY — A woman arrested for her alleged involvement in a firearms incident from last November will appear in court again in May.

Brianna Lynn Netemegesic, 21, made a brief court appearance this week and is scheduled to appear in court again in late May for her charges from November 2020, court documents show.

Netemegesic is also facing a charge of second-degree murder and aggravated assault stemming from an unrelated incident near a Picton Avenue residence from March 3, 2020. She was granted release from custody on these charges in August 2020 following a bail hearing application in the Superior Court of Justice.

In November 2020, police were called to a Picton Avenue home where police learned a suspect had pointed a firearm at another person.

A male suspect, Owen John Boyce, was arrested by police a few days after the incident while Netemgesic’s whereabouts remained unknown. She was eventually arrested by city police earlier this month after being on the run for nearly three months.

Netemegesic’s charges from the Nov. 19, 2020, firearms incident include one count of counselling another person to commit an indictable offence and two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking.

She will appear in court again on the second-degree murder and aggravated assault charge in September, according to court documents.
