A Shamattawa man has been charged in the alleged killing of a 51-year-old area resident.

As the result of an investigation, 35-year-old Reynold John Neepin has been charged with manslaughter.

Neepin remains in custody until a court appearance in Thompson on July 5.

The deceased and the accused are reported to be known to each other, police say.

An autopsy is scheduled for a later date.
