The six people charged in connection with the double homicide in Anahim Lake on Boxing Day are expected make to their next appearances in BC Supreme Court in Williams Lake on March 25, 2015.

The charges stem from an incident on Dec. 26 when the Anahim RCMP received a report at 11:53 p.m. that shots had been fired at a home in the 2,100 block of Dorsey Road in a rural area of Anahim Lake.

Upon arrival the police found 23-year-old Matthew Hennigar and 22-year-old Kalvin Andy both dead at the scene.

Hennigar was living in Anahim Lake at the time of his death and left behind a wife and small son. Andy was from Bella Coola.

On Dec. 29 the RCMP announced that Crown had approved a charge of first degree murder against 27-year-old Bryan Everett O’Reilly, charges of second degree murder against 28-year-old Christian Cracian and 25-year-old Andrew Jongbloets, and charges of manslaughter using a firearm against 33-year-old Lucille Mack and 22-year-old Stephen Mecham.

Since the charges were announced all six have made court appearances with the most recent being Wednesday, Feb. 25, when Cracian, and O’Reilly, who both remain in custody, appeared by video in BC Supreme Court in Williams Lake, while the lawyer representing Rhem appeared by phone.
