He will now remain in custody until his expected court appearance in April.

Bacon escaped first-degree murder and conspiracy charges last month in connection with the Surrey Six murders in 2007.

The judge, in that case, decided to stay the charges but the reason was not made public.

Bacon was charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit the murder of Corey Lal, who was one of six people who died in homicides that took place at the Balmoral Tower building in Surrey on Oct. 19, 2007.

Matthew Johnston and Cody Haevischer were convicted of six counts of first-degree murder and a count of conspiracy to commit murder in connection with this case in 2014. They’re serving life sentences with no chance of parole for 25 years.

In the meantime, the mother of one of the Surrey Six murder victims — Eileen Mohan — told reporters that she’s still hesitant to say that she’s confident she’ll get justice for her son.

“I’m hoping that the future will be a better future where courts will protect families that are especially uninvolved families like mine,” said Mohan.
