A coroners inquest into the death of a Red Pheasant First Nation man at a Saskatchewan correctional centre will be taking place next month.

Randal Nicotine died while at the Saskatoon Provincial Correctional Centre in May of 2019.

The 33-year-old was found unresponsive in his cell and lifesaving attempts would ultimately be unsuccessful and Nicotine would be pronounced deceased.

The public inquest into his death will begin on April 25.

During the inquest, a jury will have the opportunity to hear the circumstances around Nicotine’s death and provide recommendations to prevent similar deaths in the future.

The Saskatchewan Coroner’s Service will hold an inquest into a death the Chief Coroner believes may have been preventable.

Coroner William Davern will preside at the inquest.
