A youth accused of killing three people on the Montreal Lake reserve last year will not be going to trial.


Yesterday, the 18-year-old accused pleaded guilty to three counts of second-degree murder and two counts of assault causing bodily harm — effectively ending the case.


It was the morning of March 2nd, 2005 when shots rang out on the First Nation and three people were discovered dead at three separate locations on the reserve.


19-year-old Ferro Bird, 27-year-old Greg Naytowhow and 19-year-old Kerry Naytowhow all lost their lives.


The youth, who can’t be identified due to his age at the time of the offences, will be back in court on June 21st for sentencing.
