The RCMP Major Crime Unit North and Prince Albert Police Service have charged 27-year old Braidy Chase Vermette of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan with first degree murder in the death of Troy Cecil Napope.
In a release issued Monday morning, RCMP says the investigation was lengthy.
Napope has been subject of a missing person investigation since June 2015, when he was reported missing from Prince Albert by family.
The investigation has revealed the offence occurred on May 28, 2015, which is consistent with when Napope was last seen by friends.
Vermette has been remanded into custody and will appear in Prince Albert Provincial Court today (Monday)
