AMHERST – Zachary Quinn Brake, 18, of Mechanic Street, Springhill, will return to Supreme Court on Thursday to set a trial date on a charge of second-degree murder in connection with the death of his mother last October.

Brake was scheduled to appear in provincial court on Tuesday to begin a preliminary hearing, but he waived the hearing and re-elected trial before a Supreme Court judge.

Brake will remain in custody until his next court appearance.

He is charged with the second-degree murder of his mother, 37-year-old Tracy Ann Rudderham.

Brake turned himself in to Springhill Police just before 3 a.m., on Oct. 24, 2011, and police went to the Mechanic Street home and discovered the body.

Police have not released how Rudderham died.
