A Hatchet Lake First Nation woman charged with manslaughter has had her case committed for trial.
Last January, 27-year-old Adrienne Leona Linklater was arrested for the Wollaston Lake death of Jonathon St. Pierre, who was 24 at the time.
The RCMP was called at 11 a.m. on Jan. 18, 2015 after St. Pierre was seen unconscious at the community’s health centre. At the time, Mounties said he had been brought there with “unknown injuries and was pronounced deceased by medical staff shortly after arrival.”
Aside from saying the autopsy confirmed St Pierre’s death was a homicide, the RCMP did not release further details on the nature of his death.
Linklater was arrested four days later, and was released on an undertaking the following week.
After a series of court dates in La Ronge and Wollaston Lake, her case is moving to Prince Albert Court of Queen’s Bench where they will start planning for pre-trial.
Her case will need to go through pre-trial dates before a trial date is set.
