RCMP have charged a 19-year-old male with manslaughter in connection to a death in O-Chi-Chak-Ko-Sipi First Nation.
The charges are in connection to a suspicious fire the happened on the first nation community near Crane River in early January 2018.
Police said at the time that when the fire was put out they found human remains inside. Investigators have identified the remains and say the victim was a 40-year-old female.
Earlier on the day of the fire police received a report of an assault at the same location. Hours later they returned to the home that was on fire and fully involved. At the time police were not able to locate the female who had earlier been assaulted.
Officers arrested Earl Moar shortly after the fire and charged him with aggravated assault, arson with disregard for human life as well as a number of other offences.
On March 27, 2018, investigators charged Moar with manslaughter. Moar was still in custody as a result of the other charges in the case.
