A second-degree murder charge being faced by a Saskatchewan man in connection with a recent homicide north of Taber has been adjourned to Nov. 3.

Stacey Charles Wahpistikwan of Big Island Cree Territory was represented in Taber provincial court on Tuesday by attorney Greg White, who requested disclosure from Crown prosecutor Michael Fox.

Last month, Taber/Vauxhall RCMP discovered the body of 36-year-old Silas Lorne Kiseyinewakup near a farm north of Taber where he worked. Police found the body while responding to a complaint of a disturbance and possible missing person. An autopsy has been completed but the results have not yet been released.

Police say 38-year-old Wahpistikwan, who is also charged with one count of interfering with a dead body, knew the deceased.
