Erica is a reporter for Moose FM and energeticcity.ca in Fort St. John, B.C. She grew up in Victoria, B.C. and received her Bachelor's Degree in Journalism from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.

Ball suffered extreme brain damage when he was beaten on the corner of 100th and 100th at 2:43 a.m. on July 22. He later died when he was taken off life support on August 2. Both suspects still face charges of assault causing bodily harm and aggravated assault, despite Ball's death. His family wants to see the charges upgraded to second degree murder.

RCMP are still investigating the assault, and Crown Counsel will then assess the evidence and determine whether to approve a more serious charge. Neil MacKenzie, Communications Counsel for the Criminal Justice Branch, says there is no time frame for that to happen, and it could take longer than the accused's next court date.

Marchand remains in prison in Prince George while Metcalfe is out on bail.
