The case involving a 74-year-old man accused of murdering a teenager nearly 50 years ago is set to resume in a Calgary courtroom.

The body of 16-year-old Pauline Brazeau was found near Cochrane on Jan. 9, 1976.

The young mother was last seen leaving a Calgary restaurant hours before her death. 

In November 2023, Ronald James Edwards was arrested and charged with non-capital murder.

Non-capital murder is no longer a part of the Criminal Code of Canada. However, it was an offense at the time of Brazeau's death.

The first court appearance for Edwards was in Calgary but then his case was moved to Cochrane. 

The case moved forward on Tuesday and will resume in Calgary once again on March 8. 

The preliminary inquiry for Edwards' case has been waived with the defense's consent. The case will proceed to Calgary's Court of King's Bench, where it will eventually be heard before both a judge and jury.

Edwards remains in custody.
