A Saskatchewan man accused of killing a farm labourer north of Taber last year has had his case adjourned until August.

Stacy Charles Wahpistikwan, 38, has been charged with second-degree murder and interfering with a dead body in the death of Silas Lorne Kiseyinewakup, who was killed near a farm north of Taber where he worked.

Police found the body of Kiseyinewakup Sept. 22, 2015, after responding to a complaint of a disturbance and report of a missing person.

The case was adjourned until Aug. 9 in order to provide time for a pre-trial conference to be finalized and to set the number of days needed for a preliminary inquiry.

Wahpistikwan has been out on bail but was arrested and later released in Cold Lake for impaired driving. As part of his bail conditions, he is to reside with his uncle in Big Island Cree Territory, Saskatchewan.
