Murder charge laid in death of man near Saskatoon bar
Family members say Dustin Boulet was celebrating his birthday before he was stabbed
Police in Saskatoon have laid a second degree murder charge in the stabbing death of Dustin Boulet, 29, outside bar on the city's west side.
It happened early Saturday morning in the parking lot of the Cold Beer and Wine Store connected to Bridges Ale House and Eatery.
A manager from the store told CBC police reviewed surveillance video from the parking lot Saturday.
Early Sunday morning police issued another release to say that a man, 27, had been charged with second degree murder, along with two counts of aggravated assault. Another man, 24, is charged with accessory after the fact to second degree murder, and two counts of accessory after the fact to aggravated assault.
Both men are set to appear before a Justice of the Peace Sunday.
Brother told Boulet was stabbed while defending a friend
"He was defending his friend, apparently," said Chad Boulet. "There was something else going on outside, and there's another guy out there, six guys out there. Somebody stabbing people. So three people got stabbed, one including my brother."
Chad Boulet said his brother had been out celebrating his 29th birthday that evening.
Saturday, he was able to spend time with his brother in hospital before he died. He remembers his brother as a loving guy and a sports fan.
"He was a good guy, a really good guy. And I am sure all of his friends can attest to that. He liked hockey, baseball, definitely loved his friends and family," he said.
One other injured man released from hospital Saturday
Police are also referring to the other two injured men, both aged 30, as victims. One of them was released from hospital by Saturday afternoon, while the other was still being treated. He was described in serious but stable condition. Police have not said whether they were also stabbed.
