A second teenager charged in Saskatoon’s first homicide of the year remains in custody after his first court appearance this morning.
Eighteen-year-old Shelby Pinnell is facing charges of second degree murder and committing an indignity to a dead body in connection to the February death of 22-year-old Mervin McAdam.
McAdam’s remains were discovered in a burned out garbage bin in the early morning of February 26th.
A second suspect in McAdam’s death, an 18-year-old Saskatoon man, was arrested and charged with second degree murder in July.
Police say the two suspects in McAdam’s murder are not the two persons of interest who were initially questioned at the time of his death.
Pinnell was arrested yesterday morning at the Saskatoon Correction Centre while in custody on other unrelated charges.
He is facing two counts of attempted murder and several weapons-related charges in connection to those separate investigations.
