Jerry Constant makes first court appearance — Crown asks for psych assessment
Investigators say the man charged with killing a indigenous woman who vanished five years ago walked into a Saskatoon police station and told them where to find her body.
Police say Jerry Franklin Constant also provided a story as to what happened to Karina Beth Ann Wolfe.
The remains of the 20-year-old were located two weeks ago in a marshy area northwest of Saskatoon.
Constant, who is 33, was to appear in court this morning on charges of second-degree murder and offering an indignity to a body.
The Crown has asked for a psych assessment saying Constant’s behavior was “erratic” when he went to police with information about the case. The Crown says Constant told police he was hearing voices.
Today was not Constant’s first time before a judge, his criminal record dates back to 2001.
According to CBC.ca, Constant is a registered sex offender with previous convictions for assault and sexual assault.
Constant is not believed to have had a previous relationship with Wolfe.
He will be back in court in December.
