A date was set for the arraignment of Brent Allan Warren, the man charged with murder after the death of his seven-year-old son July 27.

Warren, 43, of Campbell River appeared in provincial court on July 28 on a single count of first degree murder as a result of the death of his son, Jonathan Warren. He was remanded in custody and on Monday, the case was adjourned until Sept. 12 for an arraignment by video.

RCMP were called to the Warren residence at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 28 and found the young boy suffering from serious injuries which he later succumbed to while in hospital, said Sgt. Craig Massey of the Campbell River RCMP.

But the early morning visit was not the first time police had dropped by the S Alder Street residence, just south of Southgate school on the 2600 block.

RCMP visited the home two times three days prior to the boy’’s death and Warren’’s subsequent arrest.

“Officers attended the Warren residence after receiving a couple of driving complaints (over that weekend), which were deemed to be unfounded at this point,” Massey said.

A memorial for Jonathan has been growing outside the home since then.

Police still have not released how he was injured or where his mother was at the time.
