Man, 25, faces manslaughter charge after death on Birdtail Sioux First Nation
Police have charged a 25-year-old man with manslaughter in connection with a death on a western Manitoba First Nation. It is the second homicide in less than two months in the community.
A 21-year-old was found dead on the Birdtail Sioux First Nation early Friday morning, according to RCMP. A 25-year-old man from Sioux Valley Dakota Nation, Man., has been charged with manslaughter and was expected in Brandon provincial court on Tuesday.
"It's one of these things that shocks everybody," Chief Ken Chalmers told CBC News on Tuesday. "It was another shocker for the community definitely. When you have a death in the community and there are families in play."
