The Hamilton man charged with second-degree murder in the fatal stabbing of his girlfriend in Kitchener is still trying to get a lawyer after he was extradited from the United States earlier this month.
Hasan is accused of killing 22-year-old Melinda Vasilije in April 2017.
Vasilije’s mother was in the courtroom and became visibly upset when Hasan appeared on the screen.
Vasilije was stabbed multiple times in her Kitchener apartment, and Waterloo Regional Police said Hasan crossed the Canada-U.S.A. border at around the same time Vasilije’s body was discovered.
He was arrested in July by authorities in Texas as part of an unrelated investigation.
