The 31-year-old man charged with two counts of second-degree murder following the shooting deaths of two men north of Glendon over the weekend was denied bail in court on Thursday morning.

Anthony Michael Bilodeau’s next court appearance on these charges will be April 9 at St. Paul Provincial Court.

Jake Sansom, 39-years-old and Maurice Cardinal, 57-years-old, were said to be hunting near Seibert Lake on Friday evening.

Police arrived at 4:00am on Saturday morning to find them shot dead near Township Road 622 and Range Road 84 beside a black 2014 Ram 1500.

Both men are Metis and have hunting and fishing rights.

Autopsy results revealed death by homicide.

Sansom was said by family members in other publications to have been recently laid off from his job as a heavy-duty mechanic.
