62-year old Roger Wayne Evans is due back in Supreme Court in Quesnel on February 16th of next year.
He’s charged with one count each of Manslaughter using a Firearm and Careless use of a Firearm.
The charges are in connection with the death of 41-year old Dale Evans.
Quesnel RCMP, responding to a report of an assault, were called to a residence on Nazko Road back in August of 2018.
Upon arrival, police say they discovered the body of an adult male.
A second adult was initially detained at the scene, but was released from custody pending further investigation.
Roger Evans was then arrested and formally charged more than a year later in November of 2019.
