After the RCMP released little more than a blurb on the death of a man at a Piapot First Nation home earlier this week, they now have a lot more to say.
The deceased man has been identified as 27-year-old Justin Crowe, and Southey RCMP say he had been at a party at the home.
Emergency crews were alerted to a stabbing around 6 a.m. on Tuesday – but Crowe was already dead when paramedics arrived. The RCMP stated he was outside the home when crews arrived.
Tia Justice Pinacie-Littlechief, a 20-year-old Regina woman, was arrested for second-degree murder that same day.
The RCMP says the two were acquaintances.
Pinacie-Littlechief made her first court appearance on Thursday morning and is due back in court on Nov. 19.
An autopsy on Crowe was conducted on Thursday.
Multiple agencies, including Southey RCMP, RCMP Major Crime South, Regina General Investigation Section, RCMP Forensic Identification Section, and the Office of the Chief Coroner are continuing their investigation into this matter.
