Four former inmates of the Saskatchewan Penitentiary have been charged in connection to last December’s fatal riot.
More than 200 inmates were involved in the incident that began in the medium security wing.
The riot broke out after inmates continued to voice their displeasure over living conditions and food portions.
Three inmates were the victims of assaults during the riot, including 43-year-old inmate Jason Leonard Bird, who died as a result.
Julius Beardy, John Linklater, Josh McLaren and Larry Windigo are all facing charges including participating in a riot.
All four will return to court next month.
