RCMP say a man is facing a murder charge, following a serious assault in Deschambault Lake.

Mounties responded to a call just before 11 AM Friday morning to find Johnathan Custer injured outside a home in that community.

He was taken to the local health clinic where he later died.

Keiffer Robillard of Deschambault Lake is charged with second degree murder. He appeared in provincial court Monday.
