2nd teenager charged with murder in connection with May killing of Prince Albert man

Prince Albert police investigators have arrested a second teenager in connection with the death of a 47-year-old man who was killed in the Saskatchewan city last May.

Police were called to the 100 block of River Street West, just east of the Saskatchewan Provincial Courthouse and the Highway 3 bridge, just before 11:30 p.m. on May 28 to a complaint about weapons.

There, 47-year-old Barry Pruden was found seriously injured and taken to Victoria Hospital in Prince Albert, where he died.

The first defendant, a 15-year-old boy from Prince Albert, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder on June 1 in connection with Pruden’s death.

Another 15-year-old Prince Albert boy was arrested Monday and is also charged with second-degree murder, Prince Albert police said in a news release Tuesday.

He was expected in provincial court in Prince Albert on Tuesday morning.

Neither teenager can be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
