The man accused of the murder of Eleanor Anthonysz and the attempted murder of her two children had a scheduled appearance for a guilty plea and sentencing adjourned Friday morning.

Walter Joseph Ramsay appeared by video in Supreme Court in Chilliwack Friday morning. He had been set to enter a guilty plea and appear for sentencing, but the appearance was adjourned after just a couple minutes.

His lawyer, Paul McMurray, told the judge that some issues still had to be resolved regarding a plea.

Ramsay is charged with killing Anthonysz and trying to kill her two children by setting their mobile home on fire on April 17.

A future court date will be set for Ramsay later this month.
