Former Oliver man arrested in Osoyoos

As a result of information provided to the RCMP, a former South Okanagan man was located and arrested Monday morning at an Osoyoos residence.

Lloyd William Cook will be transported back to Prince George for court in the near future.

A warrant was issued for Cook's arrest when he failed to show up on Jan. 31 for the verdict in his manslaughter trial.

Cook  had been on trial in Prince George in recent weeks in connection with the death of his stepson, 13-year-old Adam Scott Williams-Dudoward in 2000 in Prince George.

He moved with his family to Oliver, after the boy's death.

After ruling Cook was an absconder last week, BC Supreme Court Justice Glen Parrett delivered his verdict in the trial on Friday, finding Cook not guilty of manslaughter and criminal negligence causing death.

He was found guilty of unlawful confinement and interference with a dead body.
