A man has been arrested for second-degree murder, following an incident near Camperville last week that was initially reported by authorities as an ATV collision.

On Thursday, September 24, a 36-year old man from Pine Creek First Nation was pronounced dead, and a 39-year-old woman was taken to hospital with serious injuries following the incident.

RCMP have now confirmed there was no ATV collision, and that second-degree murder charges have been laid against 51-year-old Francis Mousseau.

Police say they attended Sandy Bay on Sunday, September 27 and made the arrest.

Mousseau remains in custody. 

Details about the nature of the incident on September 24 -- and what led to the death of the man from Pine Creek First Nation -- have not been released by RCMP at this time.
