Black Lake man ac­cused of mur­der

Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - CITY + REGION -

A 31-year-old man from Black Lake is charged with mur­der in the death of 24-year-old Brandy Ro­bil­lard.

In a news re­lease, RCMP said of­fi­cers re­sponded to Ro­bil­lard’s sud­den death in Black Lake around 5:30 p.m. on June 10. Po­lice were called to the area med­i­cal clinic, where Ro­bil­lard was be­ing treated.

On Wed­nes­day, a sec­ond RCMP re­lease in­di­cated of­fi­cers were now in­ves­ti­gat­ing the death as a homi­cide.

An au­topsy has been com­pleted, but RCMP did not pro­vide any in­for­ma­tion on the cause of death or the na­ture of Ro­bil­lard’s in­juries. The mat­ter is still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

On Thurs­day, RCMP an­nounced the ar­rest of Ch­ester Big­eye, who is charged with sec­ond-de­gree mur­der.

He re­mains in cus­tody and is set to ap­pear by phone in pro­vin­cial court in La Ronge on Fri­day.
