By The Canadian Press

ANTIGONISH, N.S. — RCMP in northeastern Nova Scotia say a 27-year-old man faces a second-degree murder charge in connection with a death on the Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation.

Police say they arrested Issiah Julian on Sunday, soon after they responded to a report of a sudden death at a home on Petow Loop Extension.

The medical examiner has since determined the 40-year-old man’s death was a homicide.

Police say Julian, who remains in custody, is to appear in Antigonish provincial court on March 6.

The Mounties say the suspect was known to the victim.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them or Crime Stoppers.
