Man charged in connection to Moosomin’s death gets 300 days in jail

With credit for time served Denver Roy only has 15 days left to serve

NORTH BATTLEFORD – One of Damian Moosomin’s accused killers pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of improperly interfering with human remains.

Denver Roy, 36, was originally charged with second-degree murder. He was sentenced Friday to 300 days in jail and given 285 days credit for time served while in remand. This means he only had 15 days left to serve and will be released by Nov. 13.

After Roy is released he will be on nine months probation. He was also ordered to provide a DNA sample to the National DNA Data Bank.

Stormy Wapass-Semaganis, Melissa Semaganis, Tye Partridge, Jannay Blackbird and a young offender who can’t be identified in accordance with the Youth Criminal Justice Act were also charged in connection to Moosomin’s murder.

Partridge, Blackbird and Wapass-Semaganis are charged with first-degree murder. Semaganis and the young offender are charged with accessory after the fact to murder.

The charges against the remaining accused haven’t been proven in court.

Judge Michelle Baldwin issued a ban on the details of Roy's case until the remaining accused have gone through the court system.

Stormy Wapass-Semaganis, 23, from Edmonton, had a bail hearing in Battleford Court of Queen’s Bench June 14. On June 17 Judge Brenda Hildebrandt handed down her decision but issued a publication ban on her decision.

The body of 20-year-old Moosomin was found in the 1500 block of 105 Street in North Battleford on May 16, 2020. He was reported missing to police on May 11, 2020.
