Cst. Paul Ste-Marie and Cst. Jean Francois Monette have been charged with manslaughter.
Additionally, three other Prince George RCMP officers, Cst. Arthur Dalman, Cst. Clarence Alexander MacDonald, and Sgt. Bayani (Jon) Eusebio Cruz, have been charged with attempting to obstruct justice in connection with the events immediately following the arrest.
