Two deaths at the Roseau River First Nation this weekend have been ruled homicides, but they are unrelated, RCMP said Sunday.
RCMP were called to assist the Dakota Ojibway Police Service in the investigation of a death in Roseau on Friday.
Police charged Richard Alex Johnson, 30, with second-degree murder in the death of Charles Gordon Joseph French, 23.
Both men are from Roseau River First Nation and were known to each other.
Johnson is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Winnipeg Monday.
The family of Charles French is asking for privacy and wish not to be contacted by the media, RCMP said.
The RCMP are also assisting the Dakota Ojibway Police Service with the investigation of a second death in Roseau River First Nation, which occurred Saturday.
The death of an adult male is being treated as a homicide.
No further details are available at this time.
