HALIFAX - RCMP say a man facing charges of sexually assaulting and confining a teenage boy will return to Nova Scotia today.

Sgt. Alain LeBlanc says 47-year-old David James Leblanc will be returned to the province from Ontario sometime after 5 p.m. via a police airplane.

He says Leblanc will appear in court in Bridgewater on Tuesday.

Leblanc was arrested Sunday in northern Ontario and was reported to be suffering from frostbite.

Police confirmed Thursday that the body of his co-accused, 31-year-old Wayne Alan Cunningham, was found in a densely wooded area close to where he was arrested.

The RCMP in Nova Scotia launched an investigation last week after a woman reported that a partially naked boy showed up at her doorstep in Upper Chelsea, N.S., with his wrists and ankles bound.
