Police have announced a murder charge in relation to a 2022 vehicle crash in West Kelowna.
RCMP said Monday they have arrested Ka-Mikosit Favelle, 27, for second degree murder in relation to a fatal pedestrian and motor vehicle incident that took place on Horizon Drive in West Kelowna in August 2022.
The incident resulted in the death of Adam Briand-Lawrence.
Favelle is charged with second degree murder, criminal negligence causing death and dangerous driving causing death.
The collision on Aug. 19, 2022 resulted in a vehicle in the ditch and on its roof, off of Horizon Drive.
While the incident initially appeared to be a simple crash, a family member took to Facebook days afterwards to announce a criminal investigation was open. RCMP at the time called the file “complex.”
Favelle remains in custody and is scheduled to appear next on Tuesday in Kelowna court.
