A woman responsible for the deaths of two Saskatoon teens is back in custody just a few months after she was released from prison.
Saskatoon police said they arrested Cheyann Peeteetuce Monday on an outstanding warrant.
She was released from prison in May, having served two-thirds of a six-year sentence imposed in June 2015 for her role in the deaths of Sarah Wensley and J.P. Haughey, both 17.
The teens were killed on May 5, 2014 when Peeteetuce sped onto 22nd Street while drunk behind the wheel of a stolen truck and trying to flee police.
By law, most offenders are let out after completing two-thirds of their sentence, under what’s known as statutory release. They are generally released under conditions, with a breach holding the prospect of seeing them sent back to prison for the remainder of their sentence.
Correctional Service Canada confirmed on Sept. 6 that the arrest warrant had been issued for Peeteetuce but declined to say at that time if it stemmed from a breach of her conditions, citing privacy laws.
