Police have arrested and charged two more suspects in the death of Brenna Menacho.

Menacho, 22, was found dead in Yellowknife May 6.

In the afternoon  May 13, the NT RCMP major crimes unit arrested and charged 24-year-old Jordan Nande, from Fort Liard, and 21-year-old Lisa Brule, from Yellowknife with murder – accessory after the fact, according to RCMP spokesperson Julie Plourde.

Devon Larabie, 27, of Yellowknife was previously charged with murder. He will appear in court next in June.

“Our investigators have been working diligently to reach the progress so far. We remain in contact with Ms. Menacho’s family and will continue to do so in this difficult time,” Insp. Alexandre Laporte, officer in charge of Yellowknife RCMP, said in a news release.

Menacho was reported missing May 6. Yellowknife RCMP were alerted to a residence in the area of Forrest Drive and Franklin Avenue that evening, where they found her deceased.

Both Jordan Nande and Lisa Brule have been remanded for court appearance scheduled for Tuesday, May 19.

None of the charges against any of the individuals named have been proven in court.
