Nathan Doucette and Dawn Gunanoot have been charged with assault, B&E

Two people have been charged in connection to a 2017 homicide in Quesnel.

Nathon Doucette, 33, and Dawn Gunanoot, 43, have each been charged with assault causing bodily harm and break and enter of a dwelling.

On Oct. 1, 2017, at approximately 4:20 a.m., Quesnel RCMP were called to the Gold Pan Motel on Front Street after a report of an assault on a man and a woman.

During the investigation, RCMP said they discovered the woman was in breach of a court-imposed condition; she was arrested and taken into custody. She was examined by Emergency Health Services and transported to hospital, where she later died.

Quesnel RCMP were cleared of any involvement in the victim’s death by police watchdog the Independent Investigations Office of B.C.

The IIO B.C. said in a press release last year that its investigators interviewed witnesses, obtained physical evidence from the scene, and reviewed video evidence, 911 reports, and medical evidence.

The RCMP has not released the victim’s name.

Gunanoot is not being held in custody, while Doucette is in custody. They are next scheduled to appear in Quesnel Provincial Court on Nov. 1, 2018.
