The case of an eastern Ontario doctor charged with murder has been adjourned for two weeks after a brief court appearance Tuesday.

Dr. Brian Nadler is accused of killing Albert Poidinger, 89, who lived in Pointe-Claire, Que., at the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital earlier this year.

Ontario Provincial Police say they were called to the hospital on March 25, after which Poidinger was declared dead and Nadler was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
