YORKTON, Sask. — A woman faces a murder charge following the discovery of remains thought to be those of a Saskatchewan man missing since last summer.
RCMP believe Colin Robert Focht of Yorkton was killed a day after he was last seen Aug. 31.
They say human remains were found in a rural area outside Yorkton on Thursday, and a forensic autopsy will be done to see if they belong to the missing 25-year-old.
Police say Taiya Alice Hudy, who is 19, was arrested earlier this week in relation to Focht's disappearance.
The Yorkton woman has made her first appearance in provincial court on a charge of second-degree murder and is to appear again next Thursday.
The RCMP say Focht’s family has been updated on the investigation.
