However, no plea was entered.

An extra month is needed to confirm the lawyer who will be representing Murphy, the court was told.

Also, police are still investigating the case and more time is needed to gather evidence.

Territorial Court Judge Michael Cozens adjourned the case until August 1 at 9:30 a.m.

On June 22, the body of 24-year-old Evangeline Billy was discovered in the Yukon River behind the Roundhouse.

Murphy was arrested shortly after.
