Three Weyburn men have been charged in connection with the homicide investigation that resulted after a home invasion on January 4.

A press release from the Weyburn Police Service stated that 18-year-old Nathan Hutt of Weyburn was fatally wounded during the home invasion, where he was amongst the group of three who were committing the offence.

Keegan R. Muxlow of Weyburn, 23 years old, has been charged with second-degree murder and the use of a firearm during the commission of an offence, unsafe storage of a firearm, and possession of a firearm without a valid license. Police stated Muxlow was the target of the home invasion on the 300 block of Fourth Street NE.

Dominick Hawkes (23 years old) and William N. McLeod (25 years old) of Weyburn have both been charged with break and enter and committing assault, wearing a disguise during the commission of an offence, possession of a weapon for the purpose of committing an offence, and possession of a firearm without a valid licence. Hawkes has also been charged with possession of cocaine.

"None of the three have been formally interviewed yet," explained Deputy Chief Rod Stafford of the Weyburn Police Service. "We hope to conduct those interviews either tonight or at the very latest tomorrow and hopefully they'll be able to shed some more light on the specifics of what happened in the residence and also the motivation, which at this point is very much a mystery to us."

The three men have been remanded in custody and will be making their first court appearance in Weyburn on Tuesday, January 8.

The investigation remains ongoing and anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Weyburn Police Service at 306-848-3250 or Crime Stoppers.
