Facing a murder charge, Anglin is entitled to full legal representation and magistrate Margaret Ramsey-Halegranted the legal aid certificate to facilitate the defendant’s ability to secure a lawyer. In the meantime, Anglin was remanded in custody until his next appearance, which is expected to be early next week.

The court heard broad details of the crown’s case against Anglin, including CCTV, the getaway car and gunshot residue. The court was also informed of a reported incident between Anglin and Jeremiah’s father a few weeks ago when Anglin reportedly threatened to kill Andy Barnes.
