A 15-year-old male youth is charged with second degree murder after a death in Stanley Mission this past weekend.

In a media release RCMP said they were called Sunday morning about an injured man at a community hall in Stanley Mission. Police said the injured man, 23-year-old Walter Ray Wilson Roberts, who is from Stanley Mission, was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

As part of their investigation police said this past Monday they executed a search warrant on a home on Muskeg Crescent in Stanley Mission to recover what they called key evidence to help them in their investigation.

RCMP said they were able to arrest and charge the youth on Tuesday. Along with the murder charge, the youth is also charged with attempted robbery, assault with a weapon along with various weapons offenses.

He is set to make his first court appearance Thursday in La Ronge Provincial Court. The youth’s name cannot be made public due to the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
