The suspect in a stabbing spree in and around the Lynn Valley Library in North Vancouver is set to appear in court on Thursday.
Yannick Bandaogo, 28, has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with an attack on Saturday that left one woman dead and six others injured.
The accused was originally set to appear in court via phone on Monday but he refused to leave his cell.
Motive in North Vancouver stabbing remains unclear, attack determined to be random: IHIT
Bandaogo has links to Quebec and has a criminal record with a history of violence in that province, according to the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
Homicide investigators are still trying to determine a motive in the attack, but say it appears to have been random and the suspect did not know any of his victims.
