EDMONTON — The suspect in a long-running murder case involving the deaths of two Alberta seniors is to be released on $25,000 bail.

Travis Vader, who is 42, was re-arrested on first-degree murder charges last week.

He was originally charged in 2012, two years after Lyle and Marie McCann were last seen fuelling up their motorhome in their hometown of St. Albert, north of Edmonton.

Vader was supposed to stand trial earlier this year, but the charges were stayed.

He is to remain on house arrest while out on bail, but further details presented at the hearing are covered by a publication ban.

The McCann’s bodies have never been found, but authorities believe the couple is dead.
