Regner and another individual were reported missing following an incident on the Rudy Johnson Bridge on August 9th, 2019, and he was found deceased in the Fraser River a little over two weeks later on the 27th.

Two other men from the Williams Lake area were also charged in connection with this case.

Charges against 27-year old Jordell Sellers were stayed by Crown Counsel back in October, while a trial is currently underway for 25-year old Micheal Drynock.

Gilbert is also charged with second degree murder in connection with the death of Williams Lake resident Richard Duncan on August 6, 2019.

That trial is set for September of this year.
