A very subdued Gordon Raymond Milley entered Courtroom No. 1 at provincial court in Happy Valley-Goose Bay Monday afternoon.

The 30-year-old Sheshatshiu man was charged with first- degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Bernice Rich, originally of Natuashish.

The incident took place Friday, June 14 in Sheshatshiu.

Rich’s body was found in a wooded area in the community and the police investigation is ongoing.

Milley appeared before Judge William English for a status hearing at 1:30 p.m. Monday.

In addition to the first-degree murder charge, Milley faces a sexual assault charge in relation to the incident, as well as three additional charges, including breach of recognizance and public mischief.

    According to news reports, the accused has a lengthy record of over 70 previous convictions on a wide-range of crimes and offenses. Another perfect example of how sentencing circles and probation DO NOT WORK. Accountability, incarceration & hard labour used to work. If we had an effective judicial system in this province, lives can be saved.
