The Crown says it is waiting for the outcome of an ongoing investigation in Nova Scotia into further allegations against George Ansel Smith.

As a result, the case has been set over until Sept. 10.

The case was called in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador in Corner Brook on Monday.

Crown prosecutor Trina Simms told judge Alan Seaborn that she believes the out-of-province investigation should be concluded before the courtís next scheduled arraignment date.

The charges against Smith stem from incidents alleged to have occurred in six communities in Newfoundland and Labrador from 1969 to 1989.
