Charges laid for allegedly helping murder suspect leave country

Detectives in the Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit have charged two men for the role it is believed they played in helping Nathan GERVAIS, a man accused of murder, travel to Vietnam before his trial.

GERVAIS was charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of Lukas STRASSER-HIRD on Sunday, Nov. 23, 2013. He failed to appear for his trial in April 2016, and was arrested nearly two years later in Vietnam.

Sean Alexander AIREY, 27, of Calgary, is charged with two counts of obstruction of justice and one count each of forging a passport, making a false statement to procure a passport, and being an accessory after the fact to murder.

Marshall Thomas QUILLIAN, 21, of Calgary, is charged with one count each of obstruction of justice, forging a passport, making a false statement to procure a passport, and being an accessory after the fact to murder.

The two men will next appear in court on Monday, Jan. 14, 2019.
