The next-door neighbour accused of murdering Markham woman Alicia Ross is scheduled to make a court appearance in Newmarket on Monday.
Daniel Sylvester, 31, is facing second-degree murder charges in the death of Ross.
The 25-year-old woman disappeared from her Markham home last August and her remains were found more than a month later, after Sylvester turned himself in.
In September, Sylvester's lawyer, David Hobson, told reporters: "He is in a frame of mind that you expect. He is very, very upset. He is very remorseful. He regrets deeply what has occurred."
Though police never considered Hine a suspect in the case, he came under intense scrutiny. His roommate told CTV Toronto that Hine has suffered a "terrible ordeal" because of the police investigation.
