A Nova Scotia man charged with murder in the death of a 33-year-old woman is due back in court next month.

Thirty-six-year-old Robert Jason MacKenzie is charged with second-degree murder in relation to the death of Nicole Campbell.

Yesterday, defence said they needed more time to review material from the Crown before setting dates for a preliminary inquiry.

Cambell's body was found by police in a New Glasgow apartment after responding to a 911 call on Dec. 30.
