Police arrested a 31-year-old Red Lake man in Dryden. Jason Kakekagumick was arrested yesterday and charged with second-degree murder.

The arrest was made with the assistance of the Tactical Rescue Unit, the Emergency Response Team and the Canine Unit.

Earlier in the week, on Tuesday, Andrew Rae, 26, also of Red Lake was also arrested for second-degree murder.

Both men were charged as a result of the death of 43-year-old John MacDougall of Red Lake. He was identified as the victim in the homicide investigation that commenced on October 29, after his body was located outside in the area of Howey Street in Red Lake.

The investigation was led under the direction of Det./Insp. Darryl Sigouin of the Criminal Investigation Branch with officers from the OPP North West Region Crime Unit and the Red Lake Detachment.

Both accused were expected to remain in custody, pending an appearance at the Ontario Court of Justice in Kenora, which was set for earlier today.
