Suspect in slaying arrested at Ahtahkakoop
A third suspect has been arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree murder in relation to a fire on the Ahtahkakoop First Nation.
Carl Anthony Albert,21, was taken into custody without incident Friday night, RCMP said.
The murder charges relate to the deaths of William Ahenakew and Trez Sparvier-Scott, who were found in a house that burned down early Monday morning in a suspicious fire. A four-year-old girl was rescued from the fire.
Albert was the third person wanted by police in connection to the fire, which took place in the early hours of Monday morning.
One suspect, Dominic Chase Ahenakew, 19, turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest. Another man, Kimmy Randall Bear, 24, was the subject of a stand-off lasting several hours at a home on the reserve Thursday. He eventually surrendered to police.
The Ahtahkakoop First Nation is about 75 kilometres north of Prince Albert, Sask.
