Charges result from seven-year-old homicide investigation

Seven years ago an infant from Sioux Valley died in hospital.

On Jan. 4, 2016, officers from Virden RCMP received a report of an infant in medical distress at a residence located in the Sioux Valley Dakota Nation.

Officers were advised that a 2-month-old female infant was taken to the hospital where she was reported to be in critical condition. On Jan. 23, 2016, the infant succumbed to her injuries and her death was deemed a homicide.

RCMP Major Crime Services attended and began an extensive investigation to determine who was responsible for this infant’s death.

In April, 2022, new information was received that advanced the investigation leading to charges being approved in relation to this event.

On Jan. 23, 2023, RCMP Major Crime Services arrested 32-year-old, Keifer Mecas, of Brandon, and charged him with Manslaughter as a result of this lengthy investigation. He was released for a court appearance scheduled for March 6, 2023, in Brandon.

RCMP Major Crime Services continue to investigate.
