Daniel Forest, who Saskatoon police identified as a person of interest in the city’s first homicide of 2017, has been charged with second-degree murder.
Officials with the major crime section said Forest, 27, was wanted for questioning following the death of a 45-year-old man last week.
Police were called to the 200-block of Avenue I South on Jan. 11 for a report of an injured man.
Rodney Bruce Wailing was taken to Royal University Hospital where he later died from his injuries.
The cause of death has not been released.
Police said Forest made arrangements to turn himself in on Saturday.
He was questioned by detectives and charged with second-degree murder and breach of court conditions.
Forest is scheduled to appear Monday morning in Saskatoon provincial court.
