Woman accused of killing Milden man to have bail hearing

·1 min read

A woman accused of killing a 61-year-old man earlier this month has a bail hearing next week in Saskatoon.

Melissa MacQueen, 42, was arrested March 5 and charged with manslaughter in connection to the death of Randall (Randy) John Garrett, 61.

RCMP say they went to a house on Saskatchewan Avenue in Milden on March 4 after someone reported there was a body in the house. Police haven’t released how Garrett died.

Garrett’s obituary states that he leaves behind four daughters and eight grandchildren. Garrett loved hockey and when he stopped playing hockey himself he enjoyed watching his nephews play and never missed a chance to talk about his hockey days.

Garrett also loved animals and almost always had a dog or two throughout his life and took them with him everywhere, whether it was driving in his truck or out on the field, said his obituary.

Milden is a tiny village of about 167 people in Central Saskatchewan about 111 kilometres southwest of Saskatoon.
