THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~~~ March 10, 2022 (LSNews) Inside Edition has learned that a two week trial has been scheduled for the suspect in the vicious beating death of 17 year old Braiden Jacob.
A 25 year old JONATHAN JOSEPH YELLOWHEAD is scheduled for a two week trial starting April 4,2022 in Thunder Bay Superior Court.
YELLOWHEAD is from Fort Hope Indian Reserve #64 but is currently being held in custody after breaching his bail.
On Sunday, December 9, 2018 shortly after 11:30 am, hardworking TBPS officers were dispatched to the southern portion of Chapples Park after a man walking his dog saw what they believe to be a dead body.
A 17 year old Braiden Jacob was first reported missing on December 6th, 2018 and the last place he was reported as being seen was in the Limbrick area around midnight on Wednesday, December 5th, 2018.
Areas of interest included Chapples Park among other areas of town, but he was ultimately found at 11:30 am on Sunday, December 9th, 2018 deceased in Chapples Park.
Hardworking Thunder Bay Police Officers investigated and that resulted in an arrest warrant for YELLOWHEAD.
Hardworking Nishnawbe Aski Police officers in Fort Hope arrested JONATHAN JOSEPH YELLOWHEAD and sent him back to Thunder Bay where he was charged with 2nd degree murder and breach of probation.
A preliminary hearing was held and it was ruled there was enough evidence to proceed to trial on manslaughter.
YELLOWHEAD has an extensive history of violence and gang activities.
Inside Edition has also learned that a DANGEROUS OFFENDER hearing has also been scheduled for May 4,2022 for YELLOWHEAD on an aggravated assault charge for a violent six on one group attack on another inmate at the Thunder Bay Jail.
The designation "dangerous offender" is reserved for Canada's most violent criminals and sexual predators. Crown attorneys can seek the designation during sentencing and must show that there is a high risk that the criminal will commit violent or sexual offences in the future
The designation carries an automatic sentence of imprisonment for an indeterminate period, with no chance of parole for seven years.
YELLOWHEAD is currently being held in custody at the Central North Correctional Center in Penetanguishene and will be transported to Thunder Bay for his hearings.
