A man arrested last month in connection with the death of a Kamloops woman who vanished nearly 20 years ago will return to court in three weeks.
Trent Larsen, 52, is facing one count of second-degree murder in relation to the death of 27-year-old Angel Lyn Fehr. According to court documents, Larsen is accused of murdering Fehr in Kamloops on May 2, 2000.
Larsen made a brief first appearance in Kamloops provincial court on Monday, Sept. 30. He is slated to make his next court appearance on Oct. 21.
Larsen, who is from Chasm, near Clinton, was arrested on Sept. 15. Police announced the arrest at a press conference in Surrey last week.
Mounties said Fehr’s body was located on a rural property near 100 Mile House after Larsen’s arrest.
Fehr was last seen on April 23, 2000, when she had Easter dinner with her family, including her two daughters, in Abbotsford. After dinner, Fehr and Larsen left to drive back to Kamloops. The expectant mother was never seen nor heard from again.
Investigators determined early in the investigation that it was out of character for the Kamloops woman to not be in contact with her two daughters, then young girls. Fehr also missed prenatal appointments and her banking and cellphone activity came to a complete halt.
