Two men have been charged in connection with a pair of recent homicides in Kwadacha.
Delmar Roland Smaaslet-Boya faces a count of manslaughter from a January 8 incident and Brent Angus McCook has been charged with second-degree murder in relation to a January 23 death, Prosecution Service spokesperson Dan McLaughlin said Monday.
In an email to the Citizen, North District RCMP Cpl. Madonna Saunderson said both incidents involved individuals in domestic relationships.
"The community is in the healing process and the RCMP are working closely with community leaders," Saunderson said. "There is no further risk to the public."
Kwadacha, also known as Fort Ware, is a community of about 270 people north of Williston Lake. Kwadacha Nation community leaders were not immediately available for comment on Monday.
Manslaughter implies the perpetrator did not intend to kill the victim and second-degree murder implies the act was carried out on impulse rather than having been planned.
