Trevor Kloschinsky is charged with first-degree murder in Rod Lazenby's death last year.
Lazenby died in hospital on Aug. 10, 2012, from injuries he received while responding to a dog-related call at Kloschinsky's home in Priddis, just south of Calgary.
Lazenby was an RCMP officer for 35 years, often working undercover in Vancouver.
Kloschinsky, who has been representing himself since he and his lawyer parted company in July, consented to further assessment when he appeared before a judge on Friday.
He is scheduled to return to court Dec. 6.
