The man accused of second-degree murder in the shooting death of a young First Nation man in the Glenside area last week is scheduled to appear in North Battleford Provincial Court Thursday morning.

Gerald Stanley, 54, was charged after 22-year-old Colten Boushie was fatally shot on his property.

According to Boushie’s uncle, Alvin Baptiste, Boushie and four friends had been swimming and drinking at a lake on Aug. 9 and pulled onto Stanley’s property after they experienced car trouble on their way home to the Red Pheasant First Nation. Following a heated argument, Boushie was shot while still in the car.

RCMP said the people in the car with Boushie were taken into custody as part of a related theft investigation, but no charges were laid.
