A 74-year-old Gravelbourg man has been charged with first-degree murder and causing an indignity to a body in connection with the disappearance of Claude Landry.
Robert Arams, 74, was charged on July 21, eight days after 48-year-old Landry was reported missing, according to RCMP in a news release.
Arams is scheduled to appear Monday morning in provincial court in Regina.
No information was released by police regarding when, or if, Landry’s body has been located.
RCMP said the investigation is ongoing.
Landry’s common-law partner, Marie Moldovan, told the media that the last time she saw Landry was on the evening of July 12, when he left their home in Kincaid, about 240 kilometres southwest of Regina, in search of their lost dog with a couple she did not know but who said they might have seen Moldovan and Landry’s missing dog.
Gravelbourg RCMP immediately considered his disappearance to be suspicious and the RCMP major crimes unit had been brought in to assist in the investigation.
