Friday, May 25, 2007 at 15:27



RCMP have identified three men facing charges in relation to the death of a 19-year-old La Loche man.


Blair Lemaige died of injuries sustained during an altercation last weekend.


Emergency crews found him in the parking lot of a La Loche business and treated him, but he succumbed to his injuries.


20-year-old Ronald Herman, 20-year-old Murray Piche and 21-year-old Elton Herman all face a charge of second degree murder.


RCMP Sgt. Brad Kaeding says they can’t say too much about how the victim died, due to the ongoing investigation.


The three suspects appeared in court yesterday and are due back on June 11th.


All of them remain in custody.


The RCMP say others could be charged, as well.
