Travis Vader, on trial for two counts of first degree murder, was arrested in Edmonton Tuesday for breaching conditions of his bail.
RCMP received results of a drug test done last Thursday and allege Vader tested positive for methamphetamine. Police also allege Vader contacted a witness sometime between March 12 and April 17.
Vader’s arrest comes nearly four weeks after more bail conditions were added to his release. His bail conditions were reviewed on April 15 after the 44-year-old showed up late for court for the fourth time. At that time, weekly, random drug tests were added to the bail conditions.
Vader is charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Lyle and Marie McCann of St. Alberta in the summer of 2010.
