Mounties arrest three people in connection to 2016 murder

ince George RCMP arrested three people on Friday in relation to a 2016 homicide.

The Prince George RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit arrested Cuyler Aubichon, Kelly Richet and Chris Russell last week for the shooting death of Robert Milligan.

Background:

At approximately 11:20 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15, 2016, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a shooting in the 3600 block of Forest Avenue near Ospika Boulevard in Prince George. 33-year-old Robert Milligan was found shot to death in the driveway of his residence.

An investigation by members of the Prince George RCMP Serious Crime Unit ensued and confirmed early information that this was a targeted event. After more than five years of working with various partners in B.C., the Serious Crime Unit obtained sufficient evidence for charge approval in the murder of Robert Milligan.

The B.C. Prosecution Service approved charges against former Prince George residents Cuyler Aubichon, Kelly Richet and Chris Russell.

On July 23 and 24, 2021, members of the Serious Crime Unit – with the assistance of B.C. RCMP Major Crime Unit – arrested all three accused. The accused are presently in custody.
