Wapass Set For Sentencing In Murder Case

Monday, January 18, 2010 at 12:45

 

 

A Thunderchild First Nation man charged with second-degree murder will learn his fate this Thursday.

 

Brett Austin Wapass is accused in the death of 19-year-old Tristan Paddy.

 

Paddy was beaten to death during a house party on the Thunderchild First Nation on April 2, 2008.

 

He was accused of stealing a bottle of liquor.

 

The trial has been held for the past week in Battleford's Court of Queen's Bench.

 

Final arguments in the case were heard today.

 

Crown prosecutor Suzanne Reid said a person who aids and abets a murder can be convicted of second degree murder.

 

Reid said Wapass did that by holding back a witness who tried to intervene in the fight.

 

She said Wapass was angry with Paddy for allegedly making moves on his girlfriend.

 

Defence lawyer George Combe said there is no real evidence that Wapass attacked Paddy.

 

The evidence that was given is conflicting, and thus, unreliable, Combe said.

Attempted Murder Suspect Now In Custody

Monday, January 18, 2010 at 12:43

 

 

A man accused of trying to murder a Moosomin First Nation man has turned himself in to RCMP without incident.

 

On Saturday, RCMP asked for the public's help to find Christopher Daniel Ludviksen of Glaslyn.

 

The 25-year-old man also calls himself Chris Wells.

 

He's accused of trying to murder a 45-year-old Moosomin First Nation man.

 

Police also accuse him of several weapons offences.

 

The charges stem from an incident which occurred on the Moosomin First Nation last Thursday.

Cabinet, New North To Discuss Northern Issues

Monday, January 18, 2010 at 12:42

 

 

Northern mayors will get a chance to voice their concerns to cabinet this week in Prince Albert.

 

Provincial cabinet ministers -- representing Highways, Municipal Affairs, Social Services and First Nations and Metis Relations -- will attend a roundtable meeting tomorrow at the Travelodge.

 

Topics up for discussion include the Northern Transportation Strategy, tourism and municipal grants.

 

New North chairman Bobby Woods says many leaders want to know how they're supposed to pay for things like landfill management, when it's not covered through existing dollars.

 

"We don't have access to certain things, like shredders and things for shredding our (used) tires, or maybe recycling them.... And we also can't afford to have landfill managers there on a full-time basis, and locking and unlocking the gates. There's just a lot of questions and concerns around those kinds of policies that cost x amount of dollars that we don't have in our operating grants," Woods says.

 

Woods adds he's happy that the ministers are ready to meet with them in person on this and other issues.
