A preliminary proceeding application for one of the two people accused of causing a 17-hour siege at Trevallyn in December last year is expected to be filed, a court has heard.
Nomi Lea Mountney, 40, has pleaded not guilty to a number of charges including selling a controlled drug, grievous bodily harm, recklessly discharging a firearm, create a common nuisance and possessing a shortened firearm.
Ms Mountney, of no fixed address, failed to appear in the Launceston Supreme Court on Friday.

Her lawyer Evan Hughes said the non-appearance took him by surprise as Ms Mountney had attended all of her appointments so far.
Mr Hughes said he intended to file a preliminary proceeding application and would not wait any further for Ms Mountney's co-accused, Brett Julian Robinson-Stacey.
The 24-year-old also appeared on Friday.
He has pleaded not guilty to charges including grievous bodily harm, armed robbery, recklessly discharging a firearm, create a common nuisance and possessing a shortened firearm.
Mr Robinson-Stacey's lawyer indicated there might be value in a preliminary proceeding application, but one was yet to be made.
Justice Robert Pearce adjourned both matters to June 28.
