Suspect charged with murder in reported stabbing west of Fort St. James

Incident at Tachie Reserve early Sunday morning claims victim, 31

Fort St. James RCMP responded to a reported stabbing on the Tachie Reserve.

A 33-year-old woman has been charged with second degree murder following an alleged stabbing on the Tl’azt’en (Tachie) Reserve about 65 kilometres west of Fort St. James early Sunday morning.

Fort St. James RCMP said in a press release that the provincial Crown Counsel has approved the murder charge against Annie Jean Anatole.

“This was an isolated incident where the two individuals knew each other and the public is not at risk,” RCMP Cpl. Dave Tyreman said in the release.

Anatole remains in custody pending an Aug. 15 court appearance.

Mounties were called to a report of a stabbing at the reserve shortly after 2 a.m. on Sunday.

Mounties were heading to the scene when they intercepted family members who were bringing a 31-year-old Tachie resident to the nearest hospital.

According to police, family members named the suspect in the alleged stabbing, and then continued to meet an ambulance.

The victim was pronounced dead after arriving at hospital.

Mounties arrested a 33-year-old suspect, and the North District Major Crime Unit is heading the investigation.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Fort St. James RCMP at 250-996-8269.

The Independent Investigations Office has been notified and are assessing the case in relation to the police officers’ actions and the medical help provided to the victim.
