A 32-year-old man has been charged with second degree murder in connection with a homicide over the weekend on Roseau River First Nation south of Winnipeg.

The man stands accused of murdering a 20-year-old Roseau River man and is currently being held in custody.

RCMP helped the Dakota Ojibway Police Service investigate two homicides that occurred in Roseau River on May 2 and 3.

Charles French, a 23-year-old Roseau River resident, was killed Friday May 2. A 30-year-old man charged with second degree murder in connection with that homicide appeared in a Winnipeg court Monday.

Police said the two incidents were unrelated.

The family of Charles French is requesting privacy and said they did not wish to be contacted by the media at this time.
