Manitoba RCMP have charged a man in the death of a 14-year-old girl in Chemawawin Cree Nation early Monday.

Her death was determined to be a homicide.

Kingsley Lachose, 19, was arrested later in the morning. He has been charged with second-degree murder and failing to comply with a release order.
