An Ottawa Mountie, accused with his wife of horrific child abuse, kept his shaved head down as he made a brief court appearance Friday.
No mention was made of the 41-year-old's scheduled visit with a court psychiatrist as he was ordered held in custody pending another appearance by video link from the detention centre Tuesday.
He clasped his hands around a roll of paper as he talked briefly with a lawyer. He also nodded slightly as a justice of the peace reminded him that he's been ordered not to communicate with his wife, the alleged victim and a list of witnesses.
His 34-year-old wife is expected to appear by video link Friday afternoon.
