The Mounties say an 18-year-old man is charged with accessory after the fact, but he was a youth at the time of the alleged crime.

Authorities have said they believe Colin Robert Focht, who was 25, was killed a day after he was last seen Aug. 31.

They say his remains were found in a rural area outside Yorkton on April 4.

A 19-year-old woman, who was charged in early April with second-degree murder in Focht's death, is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
