Brian Jerome James Paul, 27, was charged with second-degree murder after a warrant for his arrest was obtained on Nov. 20, 2020, police said.

The warrant came after he was arrested in Saskatchewan.

Police said at that time, Paul was in custody on an unrelated matter at the Saskatoon Correctional Facility. He has since been brought back to Alberta and is being held at the Edmonton Remand Centre, an EPS spokesperson confirmed.
