2 men charged for allegedly helping murder suspect flee Canada
Accused of helping Nathan Gervais escape trial in beating death of 18-year-old Lukas Strasser-Hird
Two Calgary men have been charged for allegedly helping a man accused of murder flee the country.
Sean Airey, 27, and Marshall Quillian, 21, both faces charges including obstruction of justice, forging a passport, making a false statement to procure a passport and being an accessory after the fact to murder, according to Calgary police.
The charges are linked to a first-degree murder charge against Nathan Gervais, who fled to Vietnam before his trial into the beating and stabbing death of 18-year-old Lukas Strasser-Hird.
Strasser-Hird died in 2013 after he was swarmed outside a Calgary nightclub. Gervais was to appear in court in April 2016 but failed to appear and was arrested in Vietnam nearly two years later.
His trial on a charge of first-degree murder is to start on Monday.
Franz Cabrera and Assmar Shlah were both found guilty of second-degree murder for their roles in Strasser-Hird's death, while Joch Pouk was found guilty of manslaughter.
A fourth man, Jordan Liao, was acquitted.
