A trial has begun at Prince Albert Court of Queen’s Bench for a man accused of killing another man on the Mistawasis First Nation over a decade ago.

Curtis Nataucappo sat quietly in court this afternoon, looking ahead, while lawyers argued his case before a judge and 12-member jury.

He faces one count of second-degree murder for allegedly taking the life of Alexander Ronald Sanderson on April 18th, 2001.

Sgt. Bart Morhart testified Sanderson’s body was found lying on the road 2.5 miles from the main village early in the morning.

He also said there were drag marks at the scene.

Jurors were provided large maps and binders of material to look at as the prosecution began to lay out its case.

The trial is slated to last for two weeks.
