Accused terrorists John Stewart Nuttall and Amanda Korody at a court appearance last month.

Accused Surrey terrorist in psychiatric hospital, says lawyer

John Nuttall and Amanda Korody make another brief court appearance.

One of two people accused of plotting to set off bombs at the B.C. Legislature in Victoria on Canada Day is currently in a psychiatric hospital, according to his lawyer.

John Stewart Nuttall, 38, and his wife Amanda Marie Korody, 28, made a brief appearance in Vancouver Provincial Court Wednesday (Aug. 7) morning, where Korody’s lawyer, Mark Jetté was introduced.

Tom Morino, legal counsel for Nuttall, said his client was being held at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital on Colony Farm in Port Coquitlam. He was unsure whether he would seek bail.

The two are charged with knowingly facilitating a terrorist activity, making or possessing an explosive device, conspiracy to place an explosive device with the intent to cause death or injury and conspiracy to murder persons unknown. It’s alleged they planned to set off pressure cooker bombs similar to those used at this year’s Boston Marathon. They were arrested July 1.

Their next court appearance is Sept. 20.
