A man charged after the death of a Red Deerian who was reportedly trying to stop thieves from stealing his vehicle will make his first appearance in Red Deer Provincial Court on Friday.

A Canada-wide arrest warrant was issued late last week after police identified the suspect involved as Alexander Michael Talbot, 24, of no fixed address in Red Deer. Hours after the arrest warrant was issued, police took Talbot into custody in Red Deer without incident.

Dawson Wegner was killed on March 16th in the Normandeau neighbourhood. Investigators believe Talbot was in the process of stealing Wegner’s white Ford F650 when he was confronted by Wegner.

Talbot drove the truck into Wegner which resulted in his death. The RCMP have charged Talbot with manslaughter and theft of Wegner’s vehicle.

On March 17th, the Calgary Medical Examiner Office determined Wegner died as the result of multiple blunt force trauma injuries.

On March 24th, the RCMP also charged Amanda Jo-Lynn Larsen, 27, of no fixed address in Red Deer, with possession of stolen property over $5,000 as a result of her involvement in the theft of Wegner’s vehicle.

Larsen appeared in Red Deer court on Monday.
