Kemp’s appearance on Friday at the Ontario Court of Justice was his third since his arrest. He wore a dark coat and a white-collared shirt.

The 44-year-old remains in custody and will make another court appearance in January.

Kemp was arrested weeks after police announced that they had received new information into Lewis’ death, but investigators did not release any details.
