Quentin Strawberry facing 13 new charges following Nov. 8 incident in Red Deer

An O’Chiese First Nation man awaiting trial for a February 2019 homicide is back behind bars.

Red Deer RCMP said that on Nov. 8 they responded to a complaint that a man with outstanding warrants was allegedly threatening other people in a Riverside Meadows residence.

Police arrived and took Quentin Strawberry, 39, into custody without incident.

Strawberry faces 13 new charges, including several gun-related charges, uttering threats and failing to appear in court.

The accused, who was released on bail previously, remains in custody and is due in court on the latest charges on April 4, 2021.

He is scheduled to go on trial on March 8, 2021, for charges of second-degree murder and assault causing bodily harm in connection with the death of Joseph Junior Alfred Gallant, 45, in Grandview in March 2019.

A bail review in connection with those charges is scheduled for Wednesday.

Strawberry is also scheduled to go to trial on April 15 and April 20 in connection with charges of failing to comply with release conditions on Oct. 6 and 9 in Red Deer.
