A 32-year-old man from the Kingsclear First Nation has been charged with murder in connection with the death of a 19-year-old Fredericton man who was reported missing more than two weeks ago.

The Fredericton Police Force began investigating the disappearance of Corey Daniel Sisson on July 30. He was last seen the day before on the city's north side.

On August 10, the remains of a man were discovered in a wooded area off Route 10, in Noonan, and were later identified as those of Corey Sisson. His death was determined to be a homicide.

Fredericton Police arrested Robby Mitchell Polchies on Monday on an unrelated assault warrant. He was also a suspect in the RCMP's investigation into the death of Corey Sisson, according to Corporal Jullie Rogers-Marsh.

Polchies appeared in Fredericton Provincial Court on Friday morning and was charged with first-degree murder.

He has been remanded into custody and is scheduled to return to court in Burton on September 10.

The investigation is ongoing.
