A man was sentenced Thursday to 11 years for killing an Indigenous woman in northern Alberta and later moving her body to Manitoba.
Grant Sneesby, 72, stabbed Gloria Gladue multiple times in October 2015 before destroying her cellphone, burning her clothes, wrapping her body in plastic and storing it in a trailer.
At his trial, court heard that at some point Sneesby transported the body of the 44-year-old woman to Manitoba.
Gladue, a member of Bigstone Cree Nation, was last seen in Wabasca, Alta., about 330 kilometres north of Edmonton, in October 2015 and reported missing by her family a month later.
Her remains were found in rural Manitoba almost three years later by undercover RCMP officers.
