The couple accused of plotting to set off pressure cooker bombs at the B.C. Legislature in Victoria on Canada Day will be back in court this morning.

Amada Marie Korody, who is either 28 or 29, and her partner John Stewart Nuttall, 38, are charged with knowingly facilitating a terrorist activity, making or possessing an explosive device, conspiracy to place an explosive device with the intent to cause death or injury and conspiracy to murder persons unknown.

Last month the couple's lawyer, Tom Morino, told the B.C. Supreme Court he can't act for both accused and needed time to find another lawyer for Korody.

It's expected today's proceedings are mainly to introduce Korody's new lawyer.

Morino says Nuttall is now in a psychiatric facility.

"I have been informed that my client, Mr. Nuttall, has been certified under the mental health act and is therefore at the Forensic Psychiatric Centre Colony Farm in the Lower Mainland," he said. "Now the nature as to the diagnosis, I, at this stage have absolutely no information. That's all that I know at this point."
