A man has been arrested in what a Saskatchewan police chief calls the horrific killing of a seven-year-old boy and his grandparents.

“As a police service we continue to investigate what happened while also working to make sense of something that is absolutely tragic,” Prince Albert police Chief Jonathan Bergen said.

The suspect was arrested Tuesday and is to be charged in the coming days, Bergen said. The man was known to the victims but police did not release details about how.

Officers were called to a home Sunday evening after the grandparents and two of their grandchildren were not heard from. Bergen said police are still looking into when the killings happened.

“The evidence would suggest that it happened anywhere between late Friday night into that time that we responded,” he said.

Denis Carrier and Sandra Henry, both 56, were found dead along with their grandson Bentlee.

The boy’s five-year-old sister, Kendrah, was in critical condition when transferred to a hospital in Edmonton. She is now in a stable condition.

Police have not released the children’s last names at the request of their family.

Prince Albert is about 140 kilometres northeast of Saskatoon.
