KAMLOOPS, B.C. - A lawyer for a man accused of shooting a Mountie during a traffic stop in Kamloops, B.C., says he is still waiting for information from the Crown.

Thirty-six-year-old Ken Knutson has made a video appearance in provincial court after being arrested in connection with the shooting of RCMP Cpl. Jean-Rene Michaud.

Defence lawyer Alexander Watt says he needs the police account of what happened before Michaud was shot and critically injured last December.

Watt is expected to receive documents from the Crown within two weeks.

Knutson, who is facing various charges including attempted murder, is due back in court for a potential bail hearing on March 5.

Michaud is still recovering in hospital nearly two and a half months after he was shot. (Kamloops This Week)
