A judge has found a Saskatchewan man guilty of first-degree murder in the death of his former girlfriend. He was also found guilty for offering an indignity to the remains.
Joseph (David) Caissie has been given a mandatory life sentence with no parole eligibility for 25 years. The decision was made in court late this morning.
He was arrested and charged back in July of 2016 following the death of Carol King.
She disappeared in August 2011 from her farm near Herschel and her body was discovered three weeks later, approximately 10 kilometres north of the small west central Saskatchewan town.
Caissie's trial heard there had been financial difficulties between the two before King's disappearance.
