The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FRONT PAGE -

Dy­lan Dingwell, who served fed­eral time for the 2011 shoot­ing death of his brother in Char­lot­te­town, is be­fore the courts in Nova Sco­tia.

Dingwell, 27, who now re­sides in New Mi­nas, N.S., was charged last week with pos­sess­ing co­caine for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing.

He has con­sented to be re­manded in cus­tody un­til his next court ap­pear­ance in April.

Dingwell was found guilty of man­slaugh­ter for shoot­ing his brother, Kyle Dingwell, on Jan. 17, 2011, and sen­tenced to five­and-a-half years in prison, mi­nus 17 months for time served.

He was granted full pa­role in Fe­bru­ary 2014.

On Jan. 13, Nova Sco­tia RCMP and mem­bers of the Val­ley In­te­grated Street Crime En­force­ment Unit ar­rested two peo­ple af­ter ex­e­cut­ing a res­i­den­tial search war­rant in New Mi­nas.

Dur­ing the search, po­lice seized a quan­tity of co­caine, cash and elec­tron­ics.

A co-ac­cused, As­pa­sia Maria Pare­drakos-MacCum­ber, 27, also from New Mi­nas, is charged jointly with Dingwell.

She was re­leased from cus­tody fol­low­ing her ar­rest and is sched­uled to ap­pear in Kentville pro­vin­cial court April 4.

Po­lice say Dingwell and Pare­drakos-MacCum­ber were ar­rested with­out in­ci­dent and the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing.
