Murder case making its way through system

A Maskwacis man looking at a second degree murder charge is winding his way through the justice system.

Twenty-seven year-old Kyle Littlechild, who first appeared in court on July 9, had the case adjourned until Sept. 12 in Wetaskiwin Provincial Court during his latest appearance on Aug. 6.

Littlechild has remained in custody since his arrest in early July after he was charged nearly one year after the July 6, 2018 incident that left 29-year-old Delaina Lace Cutarm dead on Schoolhouse Road north of Maskwacis on the Ermineskin Cree Nation.
