Accused faces other charges

The man accused in the fatal stabbing of a Penticton high school student appeared in court on Wednesday on separate charges.

Jamie Paul Wolanski, 19, appeared before a Justice of the Peace on Wednesday for an arraignment hearing on charges of assault, assaulting a peace officer, willfully resisting or obstructing a peace officer, uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and uttering threats.

The charges date back to Feb. 11 and the 19-year-old is due back in court for those charges on July 13.

Wolanski also made an appearance for the charge of second-degree murder in connection with the fatal stabbing of Andrew McAdam at a graduation bush party held last week in the rural Carmi area. His next court date scheduled for that charge is also July 13.
