RCMP believe Lee Bonneau was killed by a boy younger than 12

RCMP have laid out what they believe happened the night Lee Bonneau was beaten to death on the Kahkewistahaw First Nation.

Officers say the suspected killer is a boy younger than 12, described during a news conference at RCMP headquarters in Regina as a "troubled child." Bonneau died from injuries after an assault on August 21.

The Criminal Youth and Justice Act does not apply to children younger than 12 years old so RCMP say they can’t lay charges.
