Sentencing hearings are to be held this week for two Hay River residents charged for their roles in the death of a man in late December of 2017.

Alex Norwegian, 25 at the time of his death, was found deceased on a remote road on the Hay River Reserve, reportedly in his truck, between Christmas and New Year’s in 2017.

Tyler Cayen, 32, and Sasha Cayen, 25, were originally charged with murder.

He pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of accessory to manslaughter after the fact last year while she pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter.

The hearing for Tyler Cayen is to be held Thursday while Sasha Cayen’s will proceed Friday.

Both remain in custody.

A preliminary hearing is to be held next month for murder suspect James Thomas, 26.

It will be held to determine whether there is enough evidence to send the case to trial.

Levi Cayen, 20, has already been ordered to stand trial.

Both of them have elected to be tried by a jury and also remain in custody.
