Man charged in B.C. manslaughter, arrested by police in Saskatoon

LIKELY, B.C. - Police say a homicide charge has been laid in the case of a British Columbia man who was last seen a year and a half ago.

RCMP Cpl. Dave Tyreman says Gary Price's family reported him missing in the central Interior in March 2013.

He says police conducted an extensive investigation, and Price's remains were found at a property in Likely, B.C., last September.

Tyreman says the Crown has approved charges of manslaughter and committing an indignity to human remains against 54-year-old Guy Smith, who lives in the same town.

Smith was arrested in Saskatoon on Tuesday, and Tyreman says he will be brought back to B.C. to face the charges.

Police are asking anyone who has information about Price's death to call them.
