ROBLIN, Man. — A mur­der charge has been laid af­ter the dis­cov­ery of a man’s body ear­lier this month on a west­ern Man­i­toba First Na­tion.

RCMP at Roblin say the re­mains were found July 1 on Tooti­naowazi­ibeng First Na­tion.

The man has been iden­ti­fied as a 44-year-old res­i­dent of the re­serve, although his name has not been re­leased.
