Police have confirmed that the man accused of killing another man from Krydor, Sask., is in fact his son.
Arnoldo Rey Jr. has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Arnoldo Rey Sr.
On Monday, the remains of Arnoldo Rey Sr. were found buried on his property near Krydor.
Rey Jr. has also been charged with causing an indignity to a dead body.
The second charge relates to allegations about the way the victim was buried, the RCMP said. They did not provide details.
Rey Jr. is in custody and is scheduled to appear in Saskatoon provincial court on Nov. 12.
Police said during the summer that no one had seen or heard from Rey Sr. since November, 2012.
At a news conference today, police said they believe Rey Sr. was killed on July 26, 2013.
Cynthia Rao was Rey Sr.'s neighbour in the village of Krydor, which is about 100 kilometres northwest of Saskatoon, and said she had wondered about his disappearance in the spring.
"I had met him about nine years ago and he was a very nice man. A very humble man," she said. "Three years ago we had moved in to the house next to him. He was the perfect neighbour."
Another homicide case
The Rey case was one of two alleged murders in Saskatchewan this week involving a father and a son.
On Wednesday, police said they had charged Larry James McDougald, 66, with second-degree murder after he allegedly shot and killed his son Terry McDougald, 45, Tuesday morning.
