2021 trial set for man accused in Sunchild First Nation murder

Evan Earnest Foureyes charged with second-degree murder in connection with November 2018 incident

A three-week trial has been set for a central Alberta man charged with second-degree murder in connection with the death of a man on Sunchild First Nation a year ago.

Evan Ernest Foureyes, 30, will also face charges of assault with a weapon and kidnapping with a firearm when he goes to trial on April 19 to May 7, 2021.

Rocky Mountain House RCMP responded to a call at a gas station at Sunchild about 9 p.m. on Nov. 18, 2018. When police arrived, they found Arley Creed Lagrelle, 23, seriously injured and two others with non-life-threatening injuries.

Lagrelle later died from his injuries. An autopsy determined his death was homicide.

While police were searching for suspects, it is alleged that Foureyes carjacked a truck driver at gunpoint and ordered him to go to O’Chiese First Nation, northwest of Rocky Mountain House.

Foureyes was later arrested.

In Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Monday, a bail hearing was set for next Feb. 28 for Foureyes, who remain in custody at Edmonton Remand Centre. He appeared in court through a closed-circuit video link.

Charges of accessory after the fact to murder and dangerous driving that had been laid against Jamie Jerome Tyler Whitford in connection with the incident were dropped last June by the Crown prosecutor.
