Yellowknife RCMP have charged two more people in connection with the death of Breanna Menacho, 22, who was found dead in a home last week.

Police say 24-year-old Jordan Nande, 24, from Fort Liard, N.W.T. and Lisa Brule, 21, of Yellowknife were arrested May 13 and charged with being accessories after the fact to murder.

Both Nande and Brule have been remanded and are due in court on May 19.

The details of the allegations towards the pair have not been made public, nor have they been proven in court.

On May 12, Devon Larabie, 27, accused of murdering Menacho, appeared in court via video link from the North Slave Correctional Complex.

The court was only open to immediate family and authorized media.

Labarie wearing a white, sleeveless tank top remained quiet with his head cocked to one side.

By phone, Crown prosecutor Blair MacPherson asked  Chief Judge Robert Gorin for a one-month adjournment, to June 12.

Charles Davison, duty counsel, told the court that Labarie was aware the Crown would ask for a lengthy adjournment.

“During the interval, Legal Aid will be working to provide him with counsel. There are steps that need to be taken… to determine who is going to be able to assist him.”

MacPherson read seven names aloud in court, asking for each to be added to the list of people Larabie is forbidden to contact. The judge agreed, making the total number of no-contact 10 people.

Gorin told Davison that Larabie could request  bail hearing prior to the June 12 date.

At the time of his arrest, Larabie was on bail in connection to an armed robbery of  a Yellowknife convenience store on March 17.

Larabie and Maiya Klengenberg were each charged with robbery and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
