A 17-year-old Kings County boy will remain in custody until a May 8 court appearance.

The teen faces two charges of arson, a charge of break and enter, theft under $5,000 and failure to comply with conditions in connection with two fires April 17 in Aylesford.

The boy, who cannot be named because of his age, was arrested on the day of the fires, along with a 15-year-old boy. RCMP say the younger boy is also facing charges, but has not yet appeared in court.

The 17-year-old made an initial court appearance April 28 and was held in custody until a May 1 appearance. On that date, he consented to remain in custody until May 8, when he is expected to enter a plea.

He is also scheduled to enter a plea on that date to the following charges: theft from the Kingston Nova Scotia Liquor Commission on Jan. 26; break and enter and theft of an Argo from Nova Scotia Power on Feb. 1; threats of death or bodily harm in Cambridge on Feb. 25 in relation to a lock-down at a local high school; and theft from the Kingston Superstore on March 9.

He is also scheduled to have a new court date set for a charge of sexual assault and a charge of sexual touching involving a minor dating back to October 2013. The teen had plead not guilty to those charges during a March court appearance.

None of the allegations the teen faces have been proven in court.
