Man accused in Lacombe fatal shooting in court

Tyler John Campbell charged with second-degree murder for December 2019 homicide

A male charged with second-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of a Ponoka man in December was in Red Deer provincial court on Friday.

As in Tyler John Campbell’s previous appearance, family members and supporters wearing “Justice for Jeff” T-shirts were in the gallery in support of the 20-year-old victim, Jeffrey Kraft.

Campbell, 27, and Amie Rogers, 21, have each been charged with second-degree murder, robbery with a firearm and conspiring to commit an offence.

Campbell appeared through a closed-circuit video link from the Red Deer Remand Centre.

Rogers, who has been released from custody, was represented by her lawyer and was not in court.

The case returns to court on Feb. 28.
