David Folker, the 39-year-old Newfoundland man suspected of killing young mother Ann Marie Shirran, made a court appearance Tuesday morning for charges of second-degree murder and committing an indignity to a dead body. Folker, who was Shirran’s boyfriend and the father of her one-year-old child, will remain in custody until Sept. 28, when he is expected to make another appearance at a St. John’s provincial court. His mother, Marilyn Anthony, was also in the courtroom, weeping openly, and later told reporters: “He didn’t do it and we’ll prove it.” Her son had been arrested Monday, about a week after campers found the 32-year-old woman’s body in a wooded area in Cappahayden, south of St. John’s. Shirran, 32, was last seen alive on July 18.
