Four men have been charged with first degree murder, surrounding the death of Kevin Yellowbird.
Yellowbird's body was discovered in a rural area of Sturgeon County on October 17. Investigators from the RCMP's major crimes unit (MCU) and the Morinville RCMP have laid charges and stated this was not a random incident.
Sterling McGilvery (24), Skylar McGilvery (21), Tyler Fischer (31) and Cougar Fafard (24) were arrested without incident on Thursday (Feb.15).
All four men are from Edmonton and will appear in Provincial Court in Morinville at 9:30 a.m. on Feb.22.
RCMP say the death of Yellowbird is not related to the ongoing investigations regarding two other bodies located in rural areas near Morinville and St. Albert in October and November.
