A 48-year old man from McLean, Sask. accused of first-degree murder in the death of Saskatchewan Party staffer Lisa Strang is expected to be in court Wednesday morning in Regina.
John Strang was arrested and charged in August 2015 – he was in a relationship with the McLean-area woman.
47-year old Lisa Strang was found dead in her home two days before John Strang’s arrest.
Lisa Strang was one of the Sask. Party’s longest-serving employees, having worked for the party for 11 years.
Her death stunned the party and Premier Wall paid tribute to her in the Legislature as well as through social media.
“It is with sadness I write to you today to let you know of the passing of our friend and colleague Lisa Strang,” Wall said in a post on the Saskatchewan Party Facebook page.
“She was a dedicated member of our team and to many of you she is an amazing source of information and guidance,” Wall said.
