Judge orders ban on publishing youth's sentence in Edgar Ratt's death

The youth was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Edgar Ratt in Bell's Point.

PRINCE ALBERT – A judge has ordered a publication ban on the sentence of a male youth convicted in the death of 24-year-old Edgar Ratt.

Ratt died in hospital after he was assaulted at a home on Jack Bell Place in Bell’s Point on July 21, 2022.

The ban is in effect until jury trials are complete for Gracie Isbister and Cameron Ross, who are charged with first-degree murder in Ratt’s death. A pre-trial conference is scheduled for them Friday in Prince Albert Court of King’s Bench.

Charmaine Charles was charged with first-degree murder in Ratt's death, but she pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of break and enter with intent to commit an indictable act and was given a six-month conditional sentence. Katelyn Halkett, was also charged with first-degree murder and break and enter with intent to commit an indictable act. The first-degree murder charge was withdrawn.

A female youth, who can’t be identified due to the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was also charged with first-degree murder.
