TABER — A charge of second-degree murder has been laid following the discovery this week of a man’s body in southern Alberta.

RCMP say Silas Kiseyinewakup, who was 36, was found Tuesday morning adjacent to a farm where he was employed north of Taber.

Officers were called to the scene because of a disturbance and word of a missing person.

An autopsy was done Thursday in Calgary, but police are still waiting for the results of toxicology tests.

Stacey Charles Wahpistikwan, a 38-year-old man from Big Island Lake Cree Territory in northern Saskatchewan is also charged with indignity to a body.

Mounties say both men knew each other.
