A 41-year-old man made his first court appearance this morning for a recent homicide in Prince Albert.

Trevor Cook is charged with one count of second-degree murder in relation to the death of Cory Brown on September 6.

Police had found Brown’s body at a residence in the 1100 block of 14th Street West.

After an investigation, police arrested and charged Cook yesterday.

Curtis Brown, Cory’s brother, commended the police force for their quick reaction to the case.

“We thought it was very quick and they assured us every officer was working on it. Now we can start part of the closure.”

Curtis says his brother was a kind man who loved his family.

“He didn’t deserve this — and to me, this shouldn’t be taking place because Cory has never been involved in anything. He was just getting his life going in Saskatoon.”

Cook made his first court appearance this morning and is due back in court on October 23.
