Preliminary inquiry gets underway May 17 into 2018 murder north of Williams Lake

Wyatt Lee Boffa, Daine Victor Stump are charged with first degree murder

A preliminary inquiry took place in Williams Lake Provincial Court from May 17 to 21 in relation to the death of Jamie Sellars Baldwin two and half years ago

Wyatt Lee Boffa and Daine Victor Stump are both charged with first degree murder in the case.

On Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2018 at 9:35 p.m. members of the Williams Lake RCMP responded to a residence on Mountain House Road in Deep Creek, north of Williams Lake. Upon arrival officers discovered Baldwin, 43, was deceased.

Baldwin’s death was considered suspicious in nature at that time, which resulted in the Williams Lake RCMP seeking the assistance of the RCMP North District Major Crime Unit (MCU) as it carried out an investigation.

Boffa was arrested and charged on Dec. 6 2019 — Stump was arrested and charged on Jan. 7, 2020.

There is a publication ban in place that prevents media from publishing any evidence presented during the preliminary inquiry. Their next court appearance is June 17, 2021.
