SASKATOON – A Saskatchewan man has been sentenced to over 12 years in prison after his missing father’s body was discovered last year.

Arnoldo Rey Jr. pleaded guilty to manslaughter Monday morning in provincial court.

He was handed a one year consecutive sentence for interfering with human remains. Minus time served, this means an additional four-and-a-half months will be tacked onto a 12 year sentence.

Last October, RCMP major crime unit north discovered human remains on Arnoldo Rey Sr.’s property in Krydor, Sask. and subsequently charged his son.

Police believe Rey Sr. was killed in July 2012. A missing persons report was filed with Blaine Lake RCMP on May 28, 2013.

Krydor is approximately 90 kilometres north of Saskatoon.
