(Melissa Kentner watches over Barbara in a Thunder Bay hospital)
Barbara Kentner’s family has been asked to meet with Crown prosecutors and Ontario’s coroner Friday to discuss the case against a man charged with throwing a trailer hitch at the Thunder Bay woman.
Brayden Bushby faces an aggravated assault charge in relation to the Jan. 28 incident.
But after Kentner died July 4, the family had hoped his charges would be upgraded.
“I’m hoping that they do upgrade his charges,” said Melissa Kentner, Barbara’s sister. “”I hope he gets charged with murder.”
Police in Thunder Bay have been silent on the charges against Bushby since Kentner’s death.
The file has been held at the coroner’s office in Toronto.
Kentner was hit by a trailer hitch while walking down the street.
APTN has confirmed Busby has scheduled to be in court Nov. 6.
