RCMP are seeking a material witness in a double-homicide case due before court in April.

B.C. Supreme Court justice Kenneth Ball issued a warrant for a witness in the trial of Roy F. Fraser, charged with two counts of murder.

RCMP discovered the bodies of 31-year-old Damien Marks and 24-year-old Kenneth Yaretz in 2009.

According to various news sources, Yaretz and Marks went missing in the spring of that year before their bodies were recovered from a shallow grave six weeks later.

Police searched for them on Fraser's property in Knouff Lake.

Fraser was released on bail last year and awaits trial April 2 before judge and jury.
