The husband of a Kenaston woman who went missing in December 2015, was arrested and charged in relation to the homicide of of his wife.

The Saskatchewan RCMP announced they arrested and charged Greg Fertuck, husband of Sheree Fertuck, with one count of first degree murder and one count of indignity to human remains.

Fertuck was arrested last night on the outskirts of Saskatoon without incident. Mr. Fertuck has remained in the custody of the RCMP since his arrest. He is set to make his first court appearance in the Saskatchewan Provincial Court in Saskatoon, Wednesday morning.

The RCMP Major Crimes Unit stated they have not yet found Sheree’s body however they are still searching for her remains, not only for the purpose of evidence, but to provide closure to her family.

In the question period following the announcement, it was asked how not having the body may affect the case. The officer stated, although it is unusual, there have been cases that have been successful where they had not recovered the victim’s body. He continued by saying, the crown feels that they do have enough evidence to proceed in the case against Greg Fertuck.

Sheree Fertuck was first reported missing on December 7, 2015. She was last seen leaving her family farm near Kenaston. Her truck was found at the gravel pit that Sheree had been working at. Her cell phone, coat, and keys were still in the vehicle.

In April of 2016 the case was escalated from a 'missing persons' to a homicide investigation.
