Accessory to murder charges dropped

Justin Doussept was charged after being linked to the murder of Tyler Myers but has now had the case against him dropped by the Crown.

A Salmon Arm man charged after being linked to the November 2008 murder of Tyler Myers has had the case against him dropped by the Crown.

Justin James Doussept, 22, was accused of accessory after the fact to murder and obstructing justice related to the death of Myers, whose body was found on a trail adjacent to Bastion Elementary School.

Twenty two-year-old Myers was shot on a trail adjacent to the school yard.

Doussept was scheduled to appear in Salmon Arm Court on April 17, but at that time, the charges against Doussept were stayed.

Doussept was the only person named in connection with the case, as he was an adult at the time the alleged offence was to have taken place.

A man and woman are facing first-degree murder charges in connection with Myers’ death, but they cannot be identified because they were juveniles at the time of the killing.

The pair were arrested in 2012, with police saying they believe it was a planned murder.

The male suspect recently appealed a decision to deny his bail application; however, the appeal was not granted and he remains in custody pending a trial.

The female suspect was released on bail and is living in Salmon Arm under a series of court-imposed conditions.

A hearing to set a trial date is scheduled for May 28.
