The RCMP historical crimes unit has cracked an 11-year-old case.

On Tuesday an arrest was made and charges were laid in the death of Katelyn Marie Noble, according to a police news release.

Katelyn was 15-years-old when she disappeared from the Radisson area in 2007. The 11 year-long search spanned the country from Ontario to British Columbia.

Eduard Viktorovit Baranec, 41, was arrested at a federal prison in B.C. where he is serving time on another matter. He was charged with first degree murder and indignity to a human body. He is a convicted hit man, hired more than a decade ago by a B.C. man to kill his wife.

Baranec knew Katelyn and her boyfriend and the three operated a grow-op in the house she lived in, RCMP say.

Investigators hope the arrest and charging of Baranec begin to provide Katelyn’s family with some measure of comfort, RCMP say.

He made his first court appearance by video Wednesday morning at Saskatoon Provincial Court.

He is scheduled to be back at court October 16.

Today marks three years since Brandy Wesaquate went missing and still nothing...

Logical, my mind goes there too.  Something has always seemed a bit off in this case.  Hopefully whatever they're looking for in Mexico will give solid leads on what happened.

Saskatoon man found guilty of first-degree murder in death of his wife

SASKATOON - A Saskatoon man painted in court as a husband angered by his wife's many sexual dalliances with other men was found guilty Thursday of first-degree murder in her death.

David Woods was convicted by a jury of nine women and three men of strangling Dorothy Woods and dumping her body in a culvert south of Saskatoon between Nov. 11, 2011, and Jan. 4, 2012.

The Crown had argued David Woods killed his wife due to the looming stress of a divorce and the financial issues that would ensue.

The defence suggested he had been framed by the real killer and evidence planted in his garage.

Dorothy's relatives gasped at the verdict, many breaking into tears. Some thanked the jurors as they left the courtroom.

The court then heard victim impact statements from friends and relatives who described her as an amazing mother and daycare operator and "the life of the party."

Woods, who was sentenced to life with no parole for 25 years, said "no" when asked by the judge if he had anything to say.

Court heard testimony throughout the trial that the couple's marriage was on the rocks and that Dorothy had sexual encounters with multiple men.

Elizabeth Tawpisin testified that Dorothy, her best friend, told her that David would "kill her" if he found out about her dalliances with a couple of black men because he didn't like black people.

A couple of Dorothy's lovers, Wayne Lewis and Derrick Brown, testified they had received racist, threatening text messages from Dorothy's phone and believed they had been sent by her husband.

Crown prosecutor Michael Segu told the jury in closing arguments that after an argument, David knocked his wife unconscious, tied her wrists together and strangled her with a piece of rope used to tie down the family's pool tarp.

Segu suggested he then stored her body in a structure underneath the pool for a day while he bought polyurethane to wrap around her body and rope to replace the one used to strangle her.

Segu also questioned David's testimony that he and his wife were in an open relationship, wondering why he would then send angry text messages to her lovers and tell police that his wife was cheating.

The prosecutor noted that after media reported a woman's body had been found outside the city, David's truck was tracked by police GPS driving out to the area where Dorothy's body was found two days later.

Segu suggested David had "panicked," not knowing the media report was about a completely unrelated case.

The two years anniversary of Brandy's disappearance has just passed and there is still nothing new in her case.  Has she joined the ranks of other forgotten aboriginal woman that are missing or murdered?  :(
