TERRACE RCMP are recommending that a 36-year-old man be charged for second degree murder and manslaughter after concluding their investigation into the stabbing death of a man here in 2011.

Aaron Wagner, then 28, was found injured by police following an altercation at a party in one half of a duplex close by the now-closed ET Kenney Primary School on the 4600 Block of Loen on March 5, 2011.

He was taken to Mills Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

The file from the RCMP was sent to crown counsel officials who will make the final determination on whether charges should be laid or not.

A search warrant was subsequently executed at the residence following Wagner’s death and RCMP officers from the force’s regional major crime section and its forensics unit were involved in the investigation.

A person was taken into custody at the time but was released shortly thereafter.
