YELLOWKNIFE — A man accused in the slaying of a Mountie in the Northwest Territories was staying at a known drug house the night before the officer was shot.
The son of the man who owned the house has told court that there were two parties going on with a considerable amount of drinking.
Court heard the house in Hay River was a place where people would go to buy marijuana and cocaine.
Emrah Bulatci would stay at the house and sometimes cooked up crack cocaine when he came up from the Edmonton-area to deal drugs.
Bulatci, who is 25, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Const. Chris Worden.
Worden was shot four times after he responded to a call in the early hours of Oct. 6, 2007.
