Ken Lowe, 44, wants to plead guilty to all charges but his trial has been delayed pending an assessment by Alberta Health Services.
“I talked to my psychiatrist and he said if I wanted to, since I’m schizophrenic and I already take pills for my illness… I just want to plead guilty to my charges and get on with it,” said Lowe.
Wearing an orange jumpsuit and sitting in a secure cell, Lowe made the remarks in Pincher Creek Provincial Court on April 12 via video interview from the Calgary Remand Centre.
The court did not accept his plea. Crown prosecutor Clayton Giles said he was assembling Lowe’s medical information and asked that the trail be postponed.
“We received a document from Alberta Health Services saying they need additional time to make assessments,” said Giles. “We would want that information from the report for the purposes of sentencing.”

Defence lawyer John Dziadyk agreed with the prosecution.
“I’d like that report, so I’m prepared to wait,” he said.
The trial was rescheduled for May 12.
Lowe is facing multiple charges for the unprovoked assault of Crowsnest resident Prabha Sharma.
On the morning of March 9, Lowe entered Sharma’s place of work at the Subway restaurant in Coleman and struck her with a length of wood, breaking her arm. He fled the scene but was later arrested.
He faces multiple charges including assault, breach of probation, possession of a weapon and he also had outstanding warrants for his arrest.
