More charges laid in Focht murder

Three more people have been charged in the death of Colin Focht.

Jordan Ironstand, 23, and a young offender who cannot be named, have both been charged with second degree murder. A third man, who is 18 but cannot be named due to being a young offender at the time, was charged with accessory after the fact of murder.

All three were in court on April 15 on unrelated charges. Taiya Hudy, the first person charged in the case, will next appear in court on April 17.

The recovered remains were also confirmed to be those of Focht, said the RCMP in a release, with a preliminary forensic autopsy conducted by Dr. Ernie Walker on April 5. A complete forensic autopsy will be conducted this week.
