Case of Dalhousie student charged in fellow student's death due in court

HALIFAX — The case of a 22-year-old man charged in the death of a fellow student at Dalhousie University in Halifax is due in court today.

It's expected the lawyer for William Sandeson will seek bail during the hearing in Nova Scotia Supreme Court.

Sandeson was charged with first-degree murder on Aug. 20, four days after Taylor Samson was reported missing in Halifax.

Samson's body has not been found.

Sandeson is a varsity track athlete who was about to start classes at Dalhousie's medical school when he was charged.

Samson, a 22-year-old former resident of Amherst, N.S., studied physics at the university.
