A 33-year-old man wanted in connection with a homicide in Saskatchewan was arrested in Baker Lake, Nunavut.

According to Baker Lake RCMP, Corey Clarke was arrested Thursday, and remains in custody following a bail hearing.

Earlier this week, a Canada-wide warrant was issued for Clarke, who had been charged with one count of second-degree murder in connection with the death of a woman in Prince Albert, Sask.

The body of Natasha Ross, 29, was found in late May, with an autopsy later confirming her death was a homicide.

At the time that the Canada-wide warrant was issued, it was believed that Clarke was in the area of Prince Albert or La Ronge, Sask.

Baker Lake, a hamlet in the Kivalliq Region of Nunavut and generally only accessible by plane, is over 1,300 kilometres away.

Nunavut RCMP say arrangements are being made with Prince Albert police to transport Clarke back to Saskatchewan.
