Psych exam ordered

A New Brunswick man accused of a violent assault Friday will undergo a psychiatric assessment.

Corey Thomas Goodine, 35, appeared briefly in provincial court Monday to face a Nov. 13 count of aggravated assault, alleging an attack on a minor.

Duty counsel Joseph FitzPatrick asked the court Monday to send Goodine for a 30-day psychiatric assessment to determine if he's fit to stand trial or might be exempt from criminal responsibility for his alleged actions.

He said Goodine's sister, a social worker, informed him that Goodine has been diagnosed with a chemical imbalance and takes medication for depression.

Crown prosecutor Cameron Gunn didn't oppose the request.

Judge Julian Dickson ordered the assessment.

Goodine will return to court Dec. 16.

After an incident at St. Mary's First Nation on Friday, an arrest warrant was issued for Goodine.

He turned himself in later that day in Perth Andover.
