A murder charge has been laid in connection to the death of a male who suffered serious, life-threatening injuries following a fight on the Sunchild First Nation northwest of Rocky Mountain House on Friday.

Police say it was around 9 p.m. on Nov. 9 when members responded to a report of an injured adult male at the Sunchild Gas Station.

RCMP say the victim was transported to hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Further investigation led police to a residence and surrounding area on the O’Chiese First Nation Saturday and several suspects were arrested and taken into custody with the assistance of the RCMP Emergency Response Team.

No one was injured. 

An autopsy happened on Tuesday in Edmonton which determined the identity of the deceased is 23-year-old Arley Creed Lagrelle.  

Now, Evan Ernest Foureyes, 29, is charged with second-degree murder, assault with a weapon, and kidnapping. He remains in custody and will appear in Red Deer court Nov. 21.

Jamie Jerome Tyler Whitford, 25, is charged with accessory after the fact to murder, and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. He also remains in custody and will appear in Red Deer court on Nov. 14.

RCMP Major Crimes Unit, Rocky Mountain House RCMP, and Drayton Valley RCMP continue to investigate.

The Major Crimes Unit are asking for the public's assistance for any information in relation to this incident. Please contact Rocky Mountain RCMP at 403-845-2881 or your local police.
