Men accused of second-degree murder near Glendon will be prosecuted jointly

Family members and mourners gathered outside of St. Paul Provincial Court on Thursday to say a prayer.

The two men facing second-degree murder charges for the killing of Jacob Sansom and Morris Cardinal will now be prosecuted jointly.

Anthony Bilodeau appeared in St. Paul Provincial Court via CCTV and Roger Bilodeau by phone on Thursday morning as both the Crown and defence counsel allowed information to be transferred, which will mean their matter is linked.

Roughly 30 family members, mourners, and advocates gathered outside the courthouse and said a prayer for the deceased.

Roger Bilodeau was charged by Alberta RCMP Major Crimes Unit it was announced this weekend after consultation with the Crown.

He was remanded into custody and is currently in self-isolation due to COVID-19 protocols.

Anthony Bilodeau was denied bail on Tuesday at the Court of Queen’s Bench in Edmonton, his second attempt at bail.

The matter will return to St. Paul Provincial Court on July 16.
