More people have been charged after an investigation into a February homicide in Saskatoon.

The new charges include cocaine trafficking, and directing a criminal organization.

On Feb. 26, the body of 22-year-old Mervin McAdam was found in a dumpster in an alley off the 200 block of Avenue S South in Saskatoon. A fire had been lit in the dumpster.

Two people have been charged with second-degree murder in his death. One was 18 at the time, and another was 17.

Now, police say, three adults and five youths face drug and criminal charges after a five month investigation, sparked by McAdam’s murder.

A 19-year-old man and a 15-year-old girl both face charges of directing a criminal conspiracy and conspiracy to traffic in cocaine.

Seven other people, ranging in age from 15 to 18, face charges of conspiring to traffic in cocaine.

They will be appearing in court at various dates.
