A 22-year-old Nikki Quill landed herself in bail court this morning. Appearing via telephone from Pikangikum OPP station before Justice of the Peace Denette Maslach.
The court hears that allegedly, on or about March 19th, 2018 in the Pikangikum Indian Reserve #14, that Quill had thrown logs through the windows of 3 separate residences, resulting in destroyed windows and possibly interior damage. Furthermore, Quill had allegedly thrown logs at 3 separate women, striking each woman with the firewood.
Quill is facing charges of
- Assault with a weapon x3
- Mischief causing damage under $5000
- Breach of Probation (Keep the peace and be of good behaviour)
Justice of the Peace Maslach asks Quill if she understands the charges before her, Quill seems confused with what is going on. The Justice of the Peace reads out the charges once more, then asks Quill if she understands what she is being charged with. Quill responds with “by who?” sounding more and more confused. Quill continues and says “How many charges in total?” Justice of the Peace Maslach responds “Five charges”.
Crown attorney Gordon Fillmore wants Quill to show cause on why she should be released. Fillmore wants Quill to have no communication with the 3 victims until/if she is granted bail. Justice Maslach and Duty Counsel Karen Sharp agree.
Quill is remanded into custody for a Monday bail hearing in Kenora. She will be transported and appear in person for her bail hearing.
