Tiki Brook-Lyn Laverdiere, who was 25, disappeared in April.

Her remains were found by a police dog outside North Battleford on July 11.

She was in the city to attend a service for Tristen Cook-Buckle, who police have said was also a homicide victim.

Takakenew is to appear in North Battleford provincial court on Friday.

Police say they are still trying to find Nikita Sandra Cook, a 31-year-old from the Onion Lake Cree Nation in Saskatchewan, who has been charged with first-degree murder and kidnapping.

They say Cook is wanted on a Canada-wide arrest warrant and should not be approached.

Six others have already been charged in Laverdiere's death, including Nicole Cook, the mother of Cook-Buckle.
