SASKATOON – The case of a Manitoba senator’s wife charged with creating a disturbance on a plane has been put over until Wednesday.

The delay was requested while the defence reviews disclosure and discusses the case with the Saskatchewan Crown.

Maygan Sensenberger faces charges of causing a disturbance and uttering threats against her husband, Sen. Rod Zimmer.

Saskatoon police arrested the 23-year-old woman last week after she allegedly caused a ruckus on a flight from Ottawa while sitting with Zimmer, who is 69.

A witness says Zimmer started having health problems on the flight and his wife got emotional about getting him medical treatment.

The Crown has withdrawn a charge against Sensenberger of endangering the safety of an aircraft.
