LA RONGE – A man wanted since June for attempted murder made his first appearance in La Ronge Provincial Court Aug. 3.
Dennis Charles, 22, is charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, break and enter, using a firearm in the commission of an offence, three counts of discharging a firearm with intent, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and three counts of pointing a firearm.
The charges against Charles stem from an incident on June 4. La Ronge RCMP say that two men and a woman went to a home on Bird Place and shot towards the residence. A bullet hit the home. The three then forced their way inside and shot again before fleeing on foot.
Two men in the home were injured and were taken to hospital in a private vehicle.
Celine Charles and Brandon Keighley are still wanted by police in connection to this shooting.
Last year, Celine Charles was wanted for almost two months following an incident where police were shot at. She was granted bail in August 2022 and failed to appear in La Ronge court in June so a bench warrant was issued. She was wanted last year following a shooting in June 2022 that prompted the communities of La Ronge, Lac La Ronge, and Air Ronge to go into lockdown. Terrance Daigneault, 29, allegedly shot at police officers and a police vehicle. Bullets struck the cruiser’s windshield and radiator.
Charges against Celine Charles from the June 2022 incident are still before the court. She, along with Brandon Keighley, are still wanted for attempted murder.
Celine Charles is approximately 5-foot-5 and 110 pounds. She has black hair, brown eyes, and small tattoos over her eyebrow and on her cheek.
Brandon Keighley is approximately 5-foot-9 and 150 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
