WOODSTOCK–A 19-year-old woman charged in the kidnapping and death of eight-year-old Tori Stafford has made another court appearance.

Terri-Lynne McClintic appeared in a Woodstock, Ont., court via a video link and a new court date was set for Oct. 1.

Her lawyer, Jeanine Leroy, says there is a "substantial amount of evidence" to review before the case goes any further.

McClintic, and a fellow Woodstock resident, 28-year-old Michael Rafferty, are both charged with first-degree murder and kidnapping.

Tori disappeared on April 8 as she was leaving school and her remains were found in a field north of Guelph, Ont., on July 19.

Her father, Rodney Stafford, is currently on a bicycle ride to Alberta to pay tribute to his daughter and to raise funds for Child Find Ontario.
