Calgary police crack cold case, contract killing in Saskatoon drug war

CALGARY – Calgary police have arrested two men for an alleged contract killing that took place seven years ago in Saskatchewan.

Isho Hana was chased down and shot on a Saskatoon street in April 2004.

Police believe he was killed due to an escalating drug turf war in the city.

Neil Lee Yakimchuk and Kennith Jacob Tingle, both 31, are charged with first-degree murder.

Police say they are also gathering evidence against others who played a role in Hana’s death.

The two accused, along with a third man, were charged earlier this year with the first-degree murder of another man in Calgary.

Juan Carlos Dequina was found dead in his car in December 2008.
