The Saskatchewan RCMP major crimes historical case unit has laid murder charges in the death of a 15-year-old girl who was last seen 11 years ago.

Katelyn Noble disappeared from a farmhouse in the Radisson area on August 27, 2007. She was originally from Mission, B.C.

RCMP announced Wednesday that Eduard Viktorovit Baranec, 41, had been charged with first-degree murder in Noble’s death indignity to a human body.

Baranec was arrested Tuesday at a federal prison in B.C. where he is already serving a life sentence for another murder committed in 2007.

RCMP described the investigation as complex and extensive spanning the country from Ontario to B.C.

“It has been a long and stressful period for her family and today, investigators hope these developments begin to provide Katelyn’s family with some measure of comfort,” the RCMP wrote in a news release.

Baranec will appear by video at Saskatoon Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. Thursday morning.
