A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for a Calgary man convicted of killing and dismembering his best friend 10 years ago.
Dean Commanda began serving a nine-year-and-six-month sentence in February 2007 for the manslaughter death of 22-year-old Chad Largy. He was also convicted of indignity to a dead body and assault with a weapon.
Commanda was granted statutory release on Nov. 10, 2015.

Correctional Services Canada (CSC) confirms a warrant was issued July 28, 2016 for the apprehension of Commanda and the suspension of his release.
According to an agreed statement of facts heard in court when Commanda was convicted, he stabbed Largy to death. That night, the pair had been drinking at a downtown bar, before meeting up at Commanda’s southwest condo.
Court heard Largy was upset Commanda had taken off from the bar with two women, leaving him behind. Commanda dismembered Largy’s body and threw the remains into various dumpsters around the city.
Largy’s arms were discovered Jan. 20, 2006, just blocks from Commanda’s condo. He had tried to get rid of knives and other evidence by burning them west of the city–setting a U-Haul and his own car on fire.
He also ripped out the carpet and flooring from his condo, but police were still able to find traces of Largy’s blood inside.
