A man charged with murder in the disappearance of a Calgary boy and his grandparents has made a brief appearance in court.

Douglas Garland wore a blue jail jumpsuit and appeared via closed-circuit TV in front of a packed public gallery.

The case has been adjourned to August 14th to allow time for evidence to be disclosed to the defence.

Garland faces two count of first-degree murder and one charge of second-degree murder in the deaths of Alvin and Kathy Liknes and their five-year-old grandson Nathan O'Brien.

Their bodies have not been found, but Calgary's police chief says investigators have evidence they are dead.

Garland was in a relationship with a member of the Liknes family, but police have not disclosed what they think motivated the killings.
