Quesnel RCMP were called to a residence on Nazko Road back on August 1, 2018.

Police were responding to a report of an assault and upon arrival discovered the body of an adult male, identified as 41-year old Dale Evans.

Roger Evans was originally detained at the scene, but was released from custody pending further investigation.

He was arrested and formally charged more than a year later in November of 2019.
