Malkit Kaur Sidhu was arrested last week on an extradition warrant related to the June 8, 2000 killing of Jaswinder Kaur Sidhu.
The girl's uncle, Surjit Singh Badesha, is wanted on the same warrant.
A B.C. Supreme Court judge has ordered Sidhu, 63, and Badesha, 67, to appear in court again by video Jan. 18 to fix a date for a bail hearing, a procedure that was supposed to happen Wednesday.
Court heard today that Sidhu was ready to set a date for a bail hearing, but Badesha wanted to put the matter off for another week.
