Brian Whitlock was ordered not to have any communication with two witnesses.
According to court documents, the dead woman is Whitlock's mother.
Her body was found by a relative on Saturday night.
Whitlock was charged with second-degree murder on Sunday, several hours after police said a man with mental health issues had barricaded himself inside the home on the city's west side.
The case has been put over until Nov. 24. (CKNW)
