Twenty-five-year-old Blake Leggette and his 28-year-old girlfriend, Victoria Henneberry, are charged with first-degree murder.

Her body was found nearly two weeks later off the Trans-Canada Highway in New Brunswick.

Police allege the 26-year-old woman was killed the day she was last seen at an apartment she once shared with the two accused.

Saunders, an Inuit woman from Labrador, was a student at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax where her studies focused on missing and murdered aboriginal women.
