Police have charged a man with murder in the deaths of a two-year-old southern Alberta girl and her father.
RCMP say Derek James Saretzky, 22, of Blairmore, Alta., faces two courts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Terry Blanchette, 27, and his daughter Hailey Dunbar-Blanchette, who was the subject of an Amber Alert earlier in the week.
“Mr. Saretzky also faces one count of indignity to a human body in relation to Hailey’s death,” Supt. Tony Hamori said Wednesday.
The body of the girl was found on Tuesday in a rural area near Blairmore, 220 km south of Calgary.
