Trial date set for Saskatchewan constable facing first-degree murder charge

PRINCE ALBERT — A December trial date has been set for a former Saskatchewan constable charged with killing a 26-year-old man.

Bernie Herman, 54, is charged with first degree murder in the death of Braden Herman, who police say is not related to the accused.

His trial will begin on December 4 at the Court of Queen’s Bench in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.

Braden Herman’s body was found on May 11, 2021 in a secluded area of ​​Little Red River Park on the outskirts of Prince Albert.

Herman, who had been a member of the RCMP for 32 years when he was arrested, has since resigned and pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Crown prosecutor William Burge said the accused must be tried by judge and jury.
