Two arrested in connection to Sunchild homicide

Suspects to appear in Red Deer provincial court

Two suspects have been arrested in connection to Friday’s homicide on the Sunchild First Nation.

Rocky Mountain House RCMP responded to a report of an altercation at a gas station at about 9 p.m. involving a man identified by police as Arley Creed Lagrelle, 23, who was seriously injured and later died. Two others also suffered non life-threatening injuries.

An autopsy conducted Tuesday determined Lagrelle’s death was a homicide.

The suspects left the gas station in a vehicle that was later spotted in Drayton Valley. Police used a spike belt to disable the vehicle and the suspects fled on foot.

Police said three individuals were later arrested, but were determined not to be connected to the homicide. Another occupant of the vehicle allegedly carjacked a truck driver at gunpoint and was taken to O’Chiese First Nation, where the suspect went to a residence. He was arrested following a standoff with RCMP.

Another homicide suspect was arrested by Rocky Mountain House RCMP during a traffic stop.

Evan Ernest Foureyes, 29, is charged with second-degree murder, assault with a weapon and kidnapping. He was remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear in Red Deer court on Nov. 21 via closed-circuit TV.

Jamie Jerome Tyler Whitford, 25, is charged with accessory after the fact to murder and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
