It was over two years ago that the body of Nicole Robar of Spruce Grove was found floating in the Lesser Slave River. She had been murdered and dumped there.
Three people were charged in the murder – a man and a woman from Spruce Grove and a Slave Lake man.
One of those charged with Robar’s murder was convicted and sentenced in March.
According to a story in the Spruce Grove Examiner by Evan Pretzer, “Warren Kyle Warren was given a life sentence at the court in Peace River for his role in Robar’s 2017 murder. Other charges associated with the case included kidnapping, forcible confinement, assault causing bodily harm and extortion.”
Pretzer’s story goes on to say that, “According to court records, Warren plead guilty to a charge of second-degree murder and a count of interfering with a dead body was withdrawn. He will be eligible for parole after 12 years and is subject to a 10-year firearms prohibition. A second-degree conviction for murder renders Warren ineligible for parole for between 10 and 25 years, but the courts determine the final amount of time.”
As for the other two accused in the crime, this just in from Slave Lake RCMP Staff Sgt. John Spaans: the man – the only Slave Laker in the trio – is due to go to trial Sept. 30 in Peace River. The woman’s trial is supposed to begin on Nov. 26. Spaans cautions that those dates could change.
