A mental assessment has been ordered to determine the criminal responsibility of a man accused in the death of a woman whose body was discovered in a field.

Mark Lindsay, who is 25, is charged with second-degree murder, offering an indignity to a body and obstruction of justice.

One month has been given for the review and he is to be back in Red Deer court on May 6.

Lindsay, son of former Edmonton police chief John Lindsay, was ordered to stand trial following a preliminary hearing earlier this year.

The body of 31-year-old Dana Turner was found near Innisfail in west-central Alberta in October 2011.

She had been reported missing from Fort Saskatchewan, northeast of Edmonton, two months earlier.
