RCMP have arrested and charged a man with second-degree murder in relation to a death in early 2021.

According to the RCMP, 54-year-old Jacob Sewap was injured in his home in Sandy Bay in December 2020.  Sewap would later die of his injuries in early January.

Now after a nearly year-long investigation RCMP say they have charged someone in relation to his death.

24-year-old Lenny Sinclair faces a charge of second-degree murder.

Sinclair was arrested in Pelican Narrows on Thursday.

He will have his first court appearance in Prince Albert on Monday.
