34-year old Clayton Eichler is in court Monday to face murder charges in the alleged killings of two women.
In September 2013 the body of then 21-year old Kelly Goforth was found in a dumpster.
Police arrested and charged Eichler with second degree murder on New Year’s Eve 2013. The charge was later changed to first-degree murder.
Then in May 2014, Eichler was also charged with the first-degree murder of 23-year old Richele Bear, whose body has never been found.
The File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council says this trial will be difficult for some families and sent out a note Sunday saying they and Regina Treaty/Status Indian Services are committed to supporting the families through this process.
File Hills Vice Chief Elaine Chicoose says the tribal council condemns the actions perpetrated by Clayton Bo Eichler and call upon the justice system to prosecute this man to the full extent of the law.
