Wokeley to enter plea on murder charge April 4th

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The man accused of murdering and torching the body of a Blueberry River First Nations woman nearly four years ago is expected to enter a plea at an arraignment hearing in early April.

Wokeley, who is also a member of the Blueberry First Nation, is facing additional charges of arson and indecency to human remains in connection with the death of Pamela Napoleon in May 2014. Napoleon’s body was discovered inside a burned-down cabin near Buick on August 4th of that year, nearly a month after she was last seen with Wokeley on July 8th.

On Wednesday, Wokeley appeared via video link in a Fort St. John courtroom where a date for the arraignment was set for April 4th. At the arraignment, Wokeley is expected to enter a plea for the three charges he faces.

The trial will resume at the Fort St. John Law Courts at 2:00 p.m. on April 4th.
